  • Franchere Wine Company is helmed by Mike Hinds. An Oregon native, Mike got his start working in wine shops in Chicago. He eventually moved back to Oregon and took some viticulture classes, working in the cellar at Illahe Vineyards, farming grapes, and finally producing his own wines. Launched with the 2013 vintage, Mike named his project Franchere after his great great grandfather, Gabriel Franchère, who arrived in Oregon in 1811 aboard the ill-fated ship, Tonquin. Mike works with small, family-owned, responsibly worked, and dry-farmed vineyards. In the cellar, he utilizes native fermentations, neutral aging vessels, and no adjustments, allowing the wines to speak for themselves. And along with his name, the label depicts his great great grandfather’s ship.

    This co-ferment of pinot gris and grüner veltliner is a dry, unfined and unfiltered orange wine. Explosive aromas of raspberries, papaya, flaky pastry, and black pepper greet your nose, followed by flavors of juicy raspberries and tangy Rainier cherry.
