AVERAEN, Chardonnay, Oregon, Willamette Valley USA
SKU: AVAERAEN Chardonna
Winemaker Adam Smith helped launch the Banshee brand in Sonoma County after having made his start working for wineries in Oregon. After Banshee got rolling, Smith returned to Oregon in 2010 to work on his own wine brand and a few others such as Domaine Nicolas-Jay. He teamed back up with the Banshee crew about three years ago to launch Averaen, a similarly terroir-focused project for which Smith uses his wide network of Oregon growers.
