Cameron Wines: A Year in the Making
Winemaker John Paul has been making some of the state's best wines, some would say some of the best wines in the country, since 1984—a year he describes in the video above "as one of the worst vintages ever." Variously described as a genius, idiosyncratic and maniacal about his wines, he's hewed to his vision of producing wines that express both the essence of the grapes and the Jory soil in which they grow.
The video above, which documents one year in the life of Cameron Winery was made by my friend Jeremy Fenske, a newcomer to Oregon but someone we can all hope decides to make a home here so he can tell more stories about the people who make it so special.
