Hors Catégorie: A Bit of Northern Rhone in Northern Oregon

Christophe Baron, most famous for his vineyards in The Rocks, has a new discovery, a very steeply sloped basalt hillside vineyard called Hors Catégorie located on the north fork of the Walla Walla River near the Oregon border with Washington State.  It’s a small vineyard, just 2.2 acres, planted in 2011, and already producing one of America’s most outstanding Syrahs. We toured the vineyard with Christophe, who explains the site and its challenges in his own words in this video on the International Wine Review YouTube Channel.
