For three generations, the Chambers family has deep roots in Oregon. In 1991, Carolyn Chambers, acquired the family’s first winery, Hinman Vineyards, and two years later Carolyn’s daughter, Liz came on board to manage the estate and vineyards. Liz was the first to establish Oregon’s reputation for world-class winemaking. In 2013, Elizabeth Chambers Cellars opened, fulfilling Liz’s vision of creating her own winery with a focus on Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.
The blue butterfly is a tribute to Liz’s mother, Carolyn, who collected them, and inspired Liz’s journey into the winery. It is also a symbol for the style Liz strives for in her top-quality wines: balanced, beautiful and a strong sense of place.
With both their Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, the Elizabeth Chambers Cellar winemaking team strives to deliver undeniable character and varietal expression by using a “hands-off” approach at the winery. Elizabeth Chambers Cellars believes that great winemaking begins in the vineyard and is derived through restraint in the cellar. A respect for the distinct character of each vintage, varietal and vineyard site is prized in each bottle.
