Despite the day being overcast, and lightly raining, the drive into the lot led us through a column of cherry trees with pink blooms. Parked right next to vines. We felt like we walked into the home of someone who happens to grow wine. Jeri, was prepping for a slow day, and she was bright, personable, knowledgeable, and made it... More

Lots of high quality Eola Hills pinot to try, most of it grown right on property. Knowledgeable tasting room staff. We got to talking about wine, and talking, and - a very pleasant visit! Interesting history of which plots were planted when. Also some chardonnay, syrah pinot gris and viognier. Lovely stand-alone deck right on the edge of the vineyard... More

The wines of Cristom are superbly crafted with extra care, which shows up in the bouquet, mouth feel, and finish. Their Viognier is one of the finest that I have tasted.

We had a lovely time at our tasting. We learned a lot about the area's wines and the different philosophies of wine making. Christom's practice of controlling all facets of the process turns out very good wine. We ended up ordering a case of Pinot Gris that beats any other I've tasted. Merry Christmas to those of you receiving a... More

Famous for its Pinot Noirs (as is the entire Eola Hills region), this winery impresses with its tasting cellar layout, friendly staff and beautiful vineyard. A $15.00 tasting fee, nearly A$40 for two, was a little steep, considering Pinot Noir is not high on our preferred list of wines, so we toured the impressive vineyard instead.

Cristom does not have a wow factor tasting room but they more than make up for that with good wines. Add to that very knowledgeable staff who give great service and you get an overall great experience. The local cheese pairing is a nice touch too. Looking forward to receiving our shipment.

Six of us (three couples) finished our three days of wine tasting at Cristom. It turned out to be one of the highlights of the week. We had a seated tasting, with a great selection of Oregon cheeses and sausage. Our tasting host (can't recall his name) was knowledgeable and added to a great experience. The wines are excellent, with... More

Cristom has quite a reputation in the WV so it was on our tasting list. The tasting room was quite busy and a group of 4 monopolised everything. Initially there was one lady running the tastings and she spent the bulk of her time with the group of 4, so we were always waiting for our wine and received a... More

We had such a great time with our friends at Cristom. They kindly set up a table for our picnic out front and we enjoyed a couple hours of the beautiful views and amazing wines. We especially loved the Estate Viognier with our late Fall picnic. And the pinot noirs were great, of course.

My wife and I had a great time during our wine tasting at Cristom. Very nice tasting room, and some of the best service we received during our wine tasting trip. Cristom sets the standard for Oregon Pinot Noir, including their Jefferson Cuvee. They had some great deals on library wines as well, and we bought several bottles to take... More
