Jay Christopher Somers, Winemaker, J. Christopher
Jay spent 11 years making J. Christopher at the Holloran facility in the Willamette Valley before he joined the Dr. Loosen winery in Germany’s Mosel Valley. After many years and many bottles of wine, Jay and Ernst Loosen decided to begin making a collaborative Oregon Pinot called Appassionata. In 2010, they formalized their partnership, bought a 40-acre property on Chehalem Mountain in Newberg, Oregon, and began building a new J. Christopher winery. Today, Jay continues as the winemaker for the partnership, while Ernie provides Old World expertise and financial support.
