Translated into “Father Friend,” this wine is sourced from the Umpqua Valley as a dedication to Founder Jim Bernau’s father. As a small town attorney, Jim’s father helped re-establish Oregon’s wine industry in the early 1960s when he assisted Richard Sommer of HillCrest Vineyard in getting the first winery license post-prohibition.

The label of our 2018 Père Ami features a drawing of Jim's father, hand-drawn by his daughter Emi Bernau.

On the Nose: A hearty blend offering a deep nose of plum, black currant cedar and mocha.

On the Palate: A velvety palate of dark fruits including blackberry, black cherry and huckleberry along with floral and leather notes. This full-bodied wine is structured with firm tannins, balancing acidity and generous length on the finish.

Food Pairings: Enjoy with Mexican dishes like chili relleno and chicken mole or with grilled meats like a NY strip steak, smoked pork or short ribs.

Peak Drinkability: 2021 - 2027

Blend: 48 % Syrah, 19% Tempranillo, 19% Zinfandel, 13% Grenache.
