REX HILL Wins Prestigious Robert Parker Wine Advocate Extraordinary Winery Award

Oregon’s REX HILL winery won the inaugural Wine Advocate Extraordinary Winery ‘Under the Radar’ Award at a ceremony held in conjunction with Michelin Guide in New York City last night, Monday, October 30th. The award recognizes the Willamette Valley winery as “poised to become the next-great-thing” in the Americas. Lisa Perotti-Brown and the editorial team of the Wine Advocate evaluated wineries throughout North and South America to make the selection.

REX HILL was purchased in 2007 by A to Z Wineworks. Two of A to Z’s founding winemaking partners, Cheryl Francis and Sam Tannahill, and Executive Winemaker, Michael Davies, reduced REX HILL’s production by roughly 80% to refocus on wines only of the highest quality. Today REX HILL wines compose just 3% of A to Z’s total production, resulting in the ability to craft wines of singular focus and refinement. The winery’s estate vineyards are farmed using Biodynamic principles, including the flagship Jacob-Hart Vineyard.

Reflecting on ten years elevating the REX HILL brand, Tannahill says, “We are gratified for this recognition from The Wine Advocate affirming our strict pursuit of quality for one of the Willamette Valley’s legacy wineries. These are not wines we ‘have to’ make, they are wines we have the privilege of crafting. We are truly proud to be one of just eight wineries recognized from the entire Americas region in the first class of Wine Advocate honorees.”
