Explore our benchmark wines, vintage over vintage

One Membership. Flexible Options.

Our Benchmark Membership offers participation in the legacy we’ve intentionally built for over 30 years in the Eola-Amity Hills of Oregon.
It provides generous benefits for Members near and far, such as first access to new and library re-releases of our limited-production benchmark wines, exclusive savings on wine and shipping, and complimentary seasonal tastings and select events.

What does it mean to be benchmark?

Established in 1992, Cristom is a defining winery in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA.

Our craftsmanship was shaped by the visionary leadership of our founders Paul and Eileen Gerrie and Winemaker Emeritus Steve Doerner, who led our journey for decades. Drawing our inspiration from legendary benchmark estates like Burgundy’s famed Domaine Dujac and Calera in California’s Central Coast, Cristom emerged as a pioneering producer in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

Today, led by Winegrower and Owner Tom Gerrie, who grew up in these vineyards, and Winemaker and Vineyard Manager Daniel Estrin, formerly the Associate Winemaker at Littorai before joining us in 2019, we proudly uphold the high standard we set for wines from our region.

TASTING FAQS

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs on leashes are welcome in outside areas only. Fido can join in on the fun with delicious estate water and small bites (pup treats)!

Can I bring a picnic?

Guests are welcome to bring picnics to enjoy with a flight. If you bring your own picnic, we kindly ask that you bus your own table for any food-related items.

Can I bring my kids?

Supervised children (and those under 21 years of age) are welcome to accompany adults (21 years of age and older) to the tasting room for a seated or walk-in experience.

Do we get to meet the winemaker?

Our winemaking team is onsite Monday through Friday and may be available to answer questions. Please contact the winery directly to inquire about private tours and tastings with our winemakers.

WHAT ARE YOUR SAFETY PROCEDURES?

As a standard practice, we exercise safety and sanitary procedures in our tasting room, such as disinfecting all surfaces with EPA-approved disinfectant, to welcome guests to the estate.

If you will be joining us for a tour, we ask that you wear appropriate shoes (sturdy, closed-toe) to reduce any risks in the vineyard and/or barrel room.
