Gersing Cellars in Portland Produces a Nebbiolo Wine

Gersing Cellars is an urban winery in Portland, OR

Last week we enjoyed a bottle of wine with our eldest daughter who gave us a bottle of the Gersing Cellars Bri0 Nebbiolo Ciel Du Cheval Vineyard 2016. The dark ruby color wine was opaque. The wine offered an aroma of blackberries, currants, black cherries and sour cherries.  The mouthfeel was silky. The taste of black fruits included nuances of black cherries. This full-bodied wine offered medium to bold tannins. The wine finished with smooth tannins, mulberries and white pepper. This Nebbiolo wine was 14.6% alcohol

The back label of the Nebbiolo gives some insights to the name of the wine. The label notes the pronunciation and definition of brio: “noun \ br?-( )ö \ Def: enthusiastic vigor; verve”.

Gersing Cellars is located in Portland, the city’s SE region. This is a relatively new, up and coming urban winery. Gersing Cellars was established in 2015 by Jason Gersing. Two of Jason’s passions are wine and jazz. While becoming a professional jazz musician, Jason worked at a winery during harvest. He became increasingly interested in winemaking and spent time in Europe learning more about winemaking. Later Jason moved to Portland and eventually started Gersing Cellars.

The winery focuses on wine grapes from several vineyards in the Northwest with a focus on Oregon and Washington vineyards. Vineyards where grapes are sourced from include:

  • Washington’s Yakima Valley: Willard Vineyard, Red Willow Vineyard, Dineen Vineyard
  • Washington’s Walla Walla AVA: Les Collines Vineyard
  • Washington’s Red Mountain AVA: Ciel du Cheval
  • Oregon’s Willamette valley: Domaine Margelle Vineyard
  • Oregon’s Eola Amity AVA: Methven Family Vineyard

Currently Gersing Cellars crafts Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, Nebbiolo, Syrah, Merlot varietal wines available for purchase. Visit the SE Wine Collective Tasting Bar or visit Mt. Tabor Fine Wines, Blackbird Wine, Division Wines, C’est si Bon and 1856 Beer Wine Cider to purchase Gersing Cellars wine.
