" Third-generation grower and winemaker Jim Maresh continues to produce outstanding wines, both Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, as this year proved yet again. His “basic” Dundee Hills bottling is reliably one of the best entry-level Pinot Noirs in the US..." Vinous Media, Feb 2022
" Jim Maresh’s graceful style with Pinot Noir carries over emphatically to his Chardonnays, which are consistently among Oregon, and the New World’s finest examples of the variety. New oak is kept to a bare minimum and in many cases Maresh uses none at all, resulting in wines that are consistently vibrant and unadorned." Vinous Media, Sept 2020
Widely considered one of the elite estates in Oregon and in all the United States, Arterberry Maresh has long standing roots in the wine industry dating back to the late 1950's. From the start, this family ran estate has believed in organic farming practices and minimalist intervention, resulting in wines that have incredible structure and grace, while representing their specific vineyard typicality.
Raised on his family’s farm since he was born has given Jim a strong connection to and appreciation of the Red Hills of Dundee. He knows the vineyards, the neighbors and the various seasons and vintages that challenge and reward each grape grower and winemaker. His is a deep history of family, farming and winemaking. His wines reflect that heritage and the experience of three generations farming since 1959.
