Dedicated Owners of the Furioso Winery
Winemaking runs in the Furioso family. The lingering scent of crushed grapes and the tendrils of the vine has held the family together as they moved from Italy to Canada to the United States. Their American journey started in 2015 when they first started producing wines from their 30-year-old Dundee Hills Estate.
Grapes Grown in the Dundee Hills’ Oldest Vineyards
The winery focuses on farming our vineyards to produce quality products throughout the years and is working on organic certification. They nurture their vineyards through all four seasons. Furioso Vineyard is a 10-acre site with 30-year-old vines,
a winery, and a new tasting room. The much-celebrated, sunny, south-facing slopes, formerly known as the much sought-after Juliard Vineyard, are home to five blocks of Pinot Noir and one block of Chardonnay. The grapes from the two estate vineyards (the other being Trovato Vineyard in Yamhill) are fermented and barrel- aged in small lots to maximize the blending options and achieve the highest quality wines with unique characteristics.
The winemaker Dominique Mahé is fond of saying, “I wish you to taste our vineyards, not our winery.”
A Unique Place for Tasting Experience
The newly renovated winery, tasting room, and barrel room complex reflects the aesthetic perspective of the founder, artist Giorgio Furioso. Among them, the tasting room is a truly unique space – seventy feet long, thirty feet deep, with fourteen-foot- high glass walls – offering an unobstructed view on four sides. This incredible design features a shared glass wall with the winery’s “crash pad”. This allows visitors an up-close harvest experience from the warmth and safety of the tasting room.
