Roserock Winery Description
Roserock Winery stands as a shining beacon of the Drouhin family’s storied legacy in the world of winemaking, a legacy that spans over a century and crosses continents from the heart of Burgundy to the fertile soils of Oregon, USA. Nestled within the prestigious Eola-Amity Hills American Viticultural Area (AVA) of the Willamette Valley, Roserock embodies the spirit of exploration and the depth of winemaking expertise that the Drouhin family has cultivated since 1880.
The journey of Roserock began with the Drouhin family’s expansion into Oregon, marking a significant chapter in their winemaking narrative. After establishing Domaine Drouhin Oregon in the Dundee Hills in 1987, the family ventured further into the Willamette Valley, laying down roots in the Eola-Amity Hills. This expansion was driven by the family’s passion for Pinot Noir and their desire to explore the diverse terroirs that Oregon offers.
Roserock’s vineyards are strategically situated in the heart of the Eola-Amity Hills, an area renowned for its unique geological formation and the resultant viticultural benefits. The vineyards span across this AVA, taking full advantage of the region’s volcanic soils, which are particularly well-suited for cultivating grapes that produce wines of exceptional character and complexity.
The Drouhin family, under the guidance of Philippe Drouhin, has embraced sustainable farming practices at Roserock. This commitment to sustainability is not just a nod to modern agricultural trends but a core principle that reflects the family’s respect for the land and its natural processes. By integrating environmentally friendly techniques, Roserock ensures that their vineyards not only yield high-quality grapes but also contribute to the preservation of the ecosystem.
At the helm of the winemaking process is Véronique Boss-Drouhin, a fourth-generation winemaker with a profound expertise in crafting Pinot Noir. Her approach to winemaking at Roserock is characterized by a blend of traditional Burgundian techniques and a deep respect for the unique qualities of the Oregon terroir. This synergy of old-world knowledge and new-world innovation results in wines that are celebrated for their elegance, balance, and depth.

These wines are a true expression of the Eola-Amity Hills terroir, showcasing the distinctive flavors and aromas that can only arise from this unique geographic and climatic setting. The Pinot Noirs, in particular, are noted for their finesse and complexity, a testament to the meticulous care and attention to detail that the Drouhin family invests in every bottle.
