Over the last 20 years, arguably the biggest, most highly decorated name in the crowd is none other than Bergstrom Wines, where Oregon born Josh Bergstrom has become an annual staple of multiple Top 100 lists, and has seen his wine showered with more 92+ scores from Wine Spectator than any other Oregon winery.
Josh’s operation is small and mighty. He spent more than five years studying and learning in Burgundy, where he met his wife and mastered the art of making truly cellar worthy Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In the late 1990’s he brought that knowledge back to the states, and started a small production winery in the Dundee Hills.
Since inception, his wines have highlighted some of the very best of red and white wines to come out of the state with my favorite wine in his portfolio the Sigrid Chardonnay, a tribute to his late grandmother. But his Pinot Noir is no doubt his calling card, and what has earned him his latest trip to the Top 100 charts.

94 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2019 Pinot Noir Cumberland Reserve has a medium ruby-purple color and opens with some flinty tones over cranberries, bitter citrus and amaro aromas. Grainy and fresh, the medium-bodied palate offers crunchy fruits and fine earthy accents, finishing long, uplifted and spicy.
93 Points, Wine Spectator
Generous and well- structured with savory raspberry, tarragon and black tea flavors that build tension toward refined tannins.
