Westrey Wine Company was founded in 1993 by co-winemakers Amy Wesselman and David Autrey, along with David’s father, Robert Autrey, in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. In the time since, their focus hasn’t deviated from crafting elegant Pinot Noir wines, fruit-driven Burgundian-style Chardonnay and crisp, refreshing Pinot Gris. The wines are designed to be balanced and ageworthy, always complementing the food with which they are served.
Coming upon the winery, you won’t be overtaken by beautiful, pastoral vistas (you’ll have to visit the vineyard to see those); you’ll see a down and dirty winemaking operation where all else is sacrificed in the name of crafting the best wine possible. When you meet Amy and David, the fist thing you will notice is their unpretentious but passionate commitment to crafting elegant, irresistible, distinctive wines that convey the heart of their vineyard of origin.
Amy and David strive to grow their grapes and make their wines using a sustainable approach. Abbey Ridge has been dry farmed since the ’70’s, and the Justice and Oracle Vineyard’s are LIVE certified, a credential that is earned by taking into account not only organic approaches to farming but also by considering the inputs and outputs of the farm as a whole.
