Philippe Girardet was born and raised in Switzerland near the headwaters of the Rhone, a French-speaking region where winemaking is a centuries old tradition. Philippe worked on his uncle’s vineyard in Switzerland where he discovered his passion for wine. While working as a design engineer at Cal Tec in the 1960’s Philippe met a beautiful young woman named Bonnie, with her own passions for the wines of Europe. The two were romantic idealists to the very heart and were soon married. It was a vacation to Oregon in the 1960’s that lead Philippe and Bonnie to discover the lush Umpqua Valley and the future home of Girardet Wine Cellars. They selected a vineyard site Southwest of Roseburg on a sunny slope set perfectly between the cool coastal climate and the warm interior of the Umpqua Valley. The Girardets established their own vineyard in 1971. The vineyard now totals 35 acres of over 30 varieties of grapes, which have been painstakingly selected over the years. “This is an outstanding area Read more »

  • Girardet Chardonnay Umpqua Valley Blend 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Fragrant nose of toasted pineapple and loads of tropical fruit. Lightly herbal with hints of camphor and guava, and Juicyfruit chewing gum. Nice weight on the palate. Luscious, juicy flavor yet a nice beam of acid carrying it. Fresh, tropical fruit on the palate. Lots of pineapple. Slight hints of banana. Very fresh. Creamy feel and ling... Read More

  • Girardet Pinot Noir Umpqua Valley Barrel Select 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Even as cold as an Oregon Pinot should be still lots if tannins and oak, seems like high alcohol content. I've had better. Read More

  • Girardet Zinfandel Umpqua Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This tastes and smells exactly like blue punch Sweet Tarts. It's uncanny. I just had them yesterday at a kiddie birthday party and it's just a funny coincidence. The "tart" part I find interesting because I have never had an Oregon zinfandel, nor a tart one. The difference between oregon and sonoma zin is fascinating. Read More

  • Girardet Red Blend Umpqua Valley Grand Rouge 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting little experiment. 14 different grapes. Doesn't really work all that well. Tastes like a sum of different french wines that are just not my style. Great bright nose that doesn't live up on the palate. I am not disappointed that I tried it though. Definitely breaks the mold amongst West coast red blends. Read More

  • Girardet Pinot Gris Umpqua Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Another great value from Giradet. Lots of bright fruits such as honeydew and pear. Great sipper or pairing with cheeses. I had it with crunchy beer battered fish filets and roasted potatoes. Read More

  • Girardet Chardonnay Umpqua Valley Blend 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Exceptional QPR. Tastes like a $40 Napa Chardonnay. A little more sugar though and I would confuse this with a dessert wine. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Very smooth, not particularly tannic, a bit of an acidic bite. Pairs delightfully with a sharp cheddar. Read More
