Eugene Wine Cellars was founded by Bruce Biehl in 1999 as Eugene’s first “Urban Winery”, located in the Whitaker neighborhood near downtown Eugene. The first vintages were bottled and labeled in the fall of 2001, using grapes from Bruce’s vineyard management company AREA Inc. Bruce has been developing and managing vineyards with AREA for over 30 years, and in that time has developed over 200 vineyards in Oregon.
Once the grapes are grown and harvested, we turn to our winemakers Greg Sothras and Bill Kremer to process the grapes into the delicious wine that’s become associated with Eugene Wine Cellars. With over 45 years of combined experience, they help set the standard for Willamette Valley winemaking.
Our b2 Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are the pillars of our winery and the first varietals we offered in 2001. We also produce Viognier, Chardonnay, Syrah and Rose’ under our b2 label. We offer a delicious Riesling under our Moonwink label, a Sangiovese under our Fractal label, as well as a red and white blend from our Recess label.
From our extended families to yours, thank you for your consideration and we hope you enjoy our hand-crafted wines.
