Taste Willamette Valley's Fine Pinots
In the mid 1980s, Michael Etzel and his brother-in-law, influential wine writer Robert Parker, bought a former dairy farm in Yamhill County and transformed it into a pinot noir vineyard. Etzel’s three pinots have consistently earned high praise (and more than 90 points) from wine critics—other than Parker, of course. Beaux Freres, along with Belle Pente and Brick House, is a member of the Deep Roots Coalition, an organization that represents wineries that practice dry farming. 15155 NE North Valley Rd., Newberg, (503) 537-1137.
