David Lett, or “Papa Pinot,” as he was known to many, was the trailblazer of the world of Oregon wine. He and his wife, Diana, were the first to plant Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay vineyards in Oregon. When the 1975 South Block Reserve Pinot Noir showed extraordinarily well at the Wine Olympiad in Paris in 1979 and then again in Burgundy the next year, the reputation of Eyrie Vineyards and of Oregon wine in general skyrocketed. David was an avid collector of his own wines, amassing an amazing library that now demonstrates that Oregon produces wines that rival any in the world.

Here are Oregon Wine Merchants, we believe that wine clubs should be all about the wine and not about gimmicks.
Do you really need another cheap T-Shirt? Recipes that you'll never make? We didn't think so. But these things all cost time and money. Time that we'd rather spend finding wines for you and money you'd probably rather save. So our new clubs focus on bringing you exciting wines and telling something about them and why we chose them. There is a Northwest version and a Oregon Pinot Noir only version. The cost is roughly $50 / month plus shipping.
We also have a few spots open in our exclusive and very limited Founder's Club, which focuses on rare and high-end Northwest wines. The average for this club is $120.- / month.
People ask us all the time to put together a 'sampler case' of Pinots for them, so they can try out new wines aut what to stock up on. So we thought we'd make it easy for you and added a couple of pre-made sampler cases and half cases for easy ordering. Stay tuned for more bundles being added, soon.
