Bryn Mawr Vineyards
Owner and winegrower Jon Lauer left a career in law to focus on Bryn Mawr Vineyards in Oregon. He took classes at University of California at Davis and grew wine grapes in San Diego, California for a number of years. His spouse, Kathy, has long shared his passion for wine. She continues to practice law in San Diego, California.
Bryn Mawr Vineyards is located near Salem, Oregon. The estate vineyard is 15 acres in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA (Jeffrey's Block is mostly Pinot Noir planted between 1994 and 1997 with a smattering of Chardonnay and Tempranillo; Krista's Block was planted initially in 2002 to Dijon 113, 115, 667 and 777 and additional 777 and Pommard was added in 2010; David's Block was planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc in 2010). Estate, Reserve, and block-designated Estate Pinot Noirs are produced. The wines are reasonably priced.
The consulting winemaker is Rachel Rose, a graduate of the University of Adelaide in South Australia where she received her M.S. in Oenology and a Postgraduate Diploma in Viticulture. She has extensive winemaking experience in Australia, New Zealand and Oregon.
A tasting room at 5955 Bethel Heights Rd. NW, Salem, Oregon is open Memorial Day through Thanksgiving Weekend, Tuesday through Sunday 11:00 to 5:00 and by appointment.
