Andrew Rich

Andrew Rich left a very successful career as magazine editor, after deciding he wanted to change his lifestyle and jump into wine with "both feet". He enrolled into wine school, located in Burgundy, France, where there was only one other American student, who happened to be from Oregon. Years later, it was their friendship that ultimately prompted Andrew to migrate North, after he had worked five vintages with Randall Grahm, owner and winemaker at Bonny Doon Vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Passionate about Rhone style varietals, Andrew was determined to produce these warmer climate driven wines, even though he chose to live in Oregon. Starting his own label Andrew Rich Vintner in 1994, he quickly became a noted pioneer at creating Rhone-driven wines with a Northwest spin. He continues to work with some of the most respected vineyards in the Columbia Valley of Washington. Of course, he makes Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley too... 

Over the years, Andrew has created a serious following for his wines. He produces wines under two different labels: Tabula Rasa (meaning: "Blank Slate"), which is reserved for wines that are blended from various varietals. His single specific wines are limited in production and under the Les Vigneaux label (meaning: "Little Vineyards"). The current ensemble comprises an octet of highly distinctive wines: white, pink, red, redder, sweet-culminating in the sensous, opulent and the oh so sweeter Gewurztraminer late harvest wine.

Andrew's wines are distinctive, innovative, exciting and always a treat to pull from the cellar to share with friends and family. That's only if you feel like sharing the wine!

Andrew Rich 2012 Verbatim

While I can’t say that this is a word for word—grape for grape?—rendering of the vintage, that is more or less the idea behind the name.  While the Prelude is pretty and open-knit and easy going, and The Knife Edge is the most structured with the greatest mid-palate depth, Verbatim is, I think, the blend that best captures the vintage, the place, and my wine-making sensibility.  In a way, it is my “literal” expression of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir in a given vintage.  You can quote me.

Andrew Rich 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Certified Organic Vineyard

This year’s model is very racy indeed: for the first time I would dare say it could be a ringer for Sancerre.  With a nose that is initially reserved, and with little of the in-your-face passion fruit and gooseberry we often get, it becomes more expansive with air.  The palate is less weighty than usual, with excellent tension and verve.  Razor sharp acidity brings the wine to a very fine, lengthy finish, and makes one long for a crottin de Chavignol to eat along side it
