J.K. Carriere:
Ours is focused winemaking of classically structured, ageable, high-acid, smooth-tannin Pinot noir (and a little bit of Chardonnay). Nuance, movement and grace are the goal. Small production – 3500 cases for the 2007 vintage – allows owner/winemaker Jim Prosser to make the highest quality wine on a barrel-by-barrel basis.

Ours is focused winemaking of classically structured, ageable, high-acid, smooth-tannin Pinot noir (and a little bit of Chardonnay). Nuance, movement and grace are the goal. Small production – 3500 cases for the 2007 vintage – allows owner/winemaker Jim Prosser to make the highest quality wine on a barrel-by-barrel basis. Established in 1999, the winery's name is a combination of Jim's grandfathers' names. A wasp features prominently on the label because it has twice nearly killed him. For its first ten years, J.K. Carriere operated from a historic barn nestled in a working hazelnut orchard in Yamhill County, Oregon. In November 2007, J.K. Carriere purchased 40 acres of grape-growing land on the southeast flank of Parrett Mountain, about three miles due east of its original location, in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. The first vineyard blocks were planted in March 2009, and the new winery facility and tasting room opened in September 2009. View the photo gallery to check our progression. We invite you to come explore our distinctive wines at our new tasting room. We're open Friday and Saturday, 11 am to 4 pm, mid-February through November and by private appointment. The $10 tasting fee is refundable with a three-bottle purchase. The winery participates in Oregon's Thanksgiving and Memorial Day weekend wine country open houses. J.K. Carriere wines are available in wine shops, fine dining establishments and specialty markets in thirteen states, as well as directly through the winery. Read less
