Great friends, neighbors and biodynamic farmers Doug Tunnell and Josh Bergström are Burgundian-trained and Oregon-inspired when it comes to farming and hand-crafting small lots of world-class Chardonnay. Both being big advocates for this noble white variety in the Willamette Valley, especially from the Chehalem Mountains and Ribbon Ridge AVAs, they have come together for a once-in-a-lifetime joint cuvée of Chardonnay in the spirit of collaboration.
Doug Tunnell and Josh Bergström are neighbors, friends, biodynamic farmers and Francophiles, both dedicated to handcrafting one-of-a-kind, world-class Chardonnays and Pinot noirs from the ancient marine sedimentary rolling hills of the Ribbon Ridge AVA and greater Chehalem Mountains AVA here in our Willamette Valley. Brick House Vineyards was founded in 1990 and Bergström Wines in 1999. Their families’ wineries sit adjacent to each other on parallel sandy bench hillsides, and so they look directly at each other’s efforts all season long. Berg Höuse is the natural collaboration of two close properties and families with similar passions and vision.
