Lost Highway Project – Bergström – Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley – 2006

  • This wine is 100% Pinot Noir from three different vineyards within the Willamette Valley of Oregon.
  • The three vineyards are the Nysa Vineyard (33.33%), Bergström Vineyard (33.33%), and the de Lancellotti Vineyard (33.34%).
  • The Lost Highway Project was developed by Vine Street Imports and is a progressive concept in winemaking. Typically, production is small. In this case, about 150 exclusive cases of this Pinot Noir were produced.
  • In 2002, the Lost Highway Project introduced their first wine. Andrake Cellars in Washington State produced a 2000 vintage of 100% Malbec and it was labeled with the computer graphic artwork of artist Erich Weiss from Philadelphia.
  • Collaboratively, the Lost Highway Project and Bergstrom both believe that winemaking must be done with fruit of great purity and the process begins in the vineyard.
  • This wine is the only one of the Project to be made by Bergström. Wines have been made from a variety of countries and varietals for the Project.
  • Made by Josh Bergström.
