In 1999, Josh Bergström returned to Oregon after a postgraduate program in viticulture and enology in Burgundy and founded the Bergström label with his father, John Bergström. Josh's experience in burgundy led him to harvest early, after weaning himself from the practice of tasting for ripeness. The Burgundians also inspired him to commit to biodynamics, which he practices in all of his vineyards. The Bergström winery now farms five estate vineyards (Bergström, de Lancellotti, Gregory Ranch, Winery Block and Pre du Col), totaling 85 acres. Biodynamic farming dates to 2000. Pinot Noir is also sourced from Shea Vineyard and Temperance Hill Vineyard. 80% of production is estate grown.
