Hottest Small Brand

Wine Buisness Monthly

Willamette Valley Vineyards/2006 Pinot Noir earned the coveted “Hottest Small Brand” of 2007 by Wine Business Monthly, the industry’s leading trade publication for wineries and growers.
Cyril Penn, the Editor of Wine Business Monthly (WBM) wrote: “Willamette Valley Vineyards is one of those wineries demonstrating that you can increase quality while increasing production; the two aren’t mutually exclusive.”

Each year, the publication selects the top ten Hottest Small Brands of the Year.  They listed Oregon winery Willamette Valley Vineyards as the number one hottest brand in America in the February 2008 issue.  The criteria for being included on the list include “wines that deliver value and execute their vision particularly well,” Penn noted.

The winery’s wines have received acclaim in judgings and by wine reviewers for years, but high demand has caused the winery to frequently sell out and carefully allocate due to demand that exceeds supply.  Last year was a banner year for WVV; recording third quarter earnings that were up 81 percent from the previous year.  Year-to-date earnings have increased 21 percent.

“We are honored by the Wine Business Monthly’s” selection." said Jim Bernau, founder of Willamette Valley Vineyards,  “All Oregon wineries should take pride in the recognition Oregon will receive from this listing.  We live, grow winegrapes and make wine in a special place on the planet.  Not only can we make world class Pinot Noir here but do it in a way that preserves the environment, protects the land and supports a healthy lifestyle.”
