The McWilliam’s family name stands for a long history of excellence in winemaking, a tradition which stretches back to the earliest days of the Australian wine industry. Since 1877, when founder Samuel McWilliam first planted vines on the banks of the Murray River in New South Wales, the McWilliam family have produced six consecutive generations of winemakers. The wines made by McWilliam’s are more than just benchmark expressions of Australian winemaking. They are wines that draw on more than 140 years of experience, wines that tell a story of a family’s passion for winemaking.

The Cool Climate Chardonnay has aromas of citrus blossom and stone fruit that are supported by subtle vanillin oak and a subtle hint of oyster shell. The palate is soft and fruit driven with an added creamy texture from lees stirring. Fruit flavors of melon and stone fruit dominate a richly textured palate and are well balanced with subtle oak nuance.

Ted Gerber, the founder of Foris Vineyards Winery, developed a passion for making homemade wine during his college years. Over 40 years ago, the Gerber family began planting their first vineyard on the terrace of the Siskiyou Mountains. Only seven miles within the Oregon border, Foris is the southern-most vineyard in the Pacific Northwest. As one of the state’s grape growing pioneers, the Gerber family recognized the potential to grow high quality, premium vinifera grapes in the higher elevations of the region. Surrounded by several pristine wilderness areas, Foris now boasts over 135 acres of estate vineyards, just 25 miles due east of the Pacific Ocean in Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley Appellation. Ted’s commitment as a caretaker of the vineyards since the planting of the first vine to the last, is the hallmark of Foris and the foundation of their commitment to produce distinctive, high quality wines.

Foris Vineyards is one of the true pioneers of Oregon Pinot Noir. This 2014 vintage boasts big flavors of plum, blackberry, black cherry, and brown spices that complement it all. While big, rich and concentrated, the plush texture brings the wine into balance and flows into a long, smooth finish.
