Maison Louis Jadot shares an update from the French wine company’s first venture outside of Burgundy, as the Résonance Tasting Room opens for visitor experiences in the heart of the Oregon vineyard.
Founded in 2013, Résonance sits in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, on a hilltop in a hidden part of Willamette Valley just west of the small agricultural town of Carlton and minutes from the historic downtown of McMinnville.
Welcoming guests to discover the special connection between Burgundy and Oregon, a calendar of regular wine events includes casual tastings, food and wine parings and private vineyard tours.
As they taste, visitors – who can purchase small-lot wines that are available exclusively from the Résonance Tasting Room – are treated to stunning views of the vineyard estate and Oregon Coast Range from large windows overlooking the vineyard and an expansive west-facing terrace.
The Résonance Tasting Room’s three buildings are modelled on traditional Oregon barns with interiors made of earthy wood and stone materials, and then for the exteriors, reclaimed wood from old covered bridges and barns in the Pacific Northwest.
“We are delighted that the new Résonance Tasting Room is now open to the public and that visitors from around the world can discover its expressive wines and terroir at first hand. Louis Jadot is offering a taste of Old World Burgundy in New World Oregon. I would encourage any wine lover to come and uncover this stunning region and experience Oregon in person; it is a very special place.”
