We’re excited to announce Bob Bertheau is joining the J. Christopher winemaking team!

Ernst Loosen and Bob Bertheau are reuniting at J. Christopher. The two winemakers first started working with one another over two decades ago when they collaborated on the high-end Riesling, Eroica, produced at Chateau Ste. Michelle. Eroica celebrated its 20th vintage in 2019. 

Bertheau has moved to Oregon and has started his own consulting business. Bob will be aiding in the winemaking process at J. Christopher and learning about Oregon wine and specifically, Oregon Pinot Noir from Timothy Malone, our Head Winemaker.
