Founded in 2011 by John House and Ksenija Kostic House, Ovum was born out of the realization that Riesling in Oregon has similar qualities one would find in world class growing regions. As such, Ovum is exclusively committed to producing the absolute best white wines Oregon has to offer from Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Muscat. Each wine is produced exactly the same way - if the wine smells or tastes different it has everything to do with the time and place, and little to do with the winemaker. Their hope is that through this minimal handling, and honest technique, they can produce old fashioned wines for the modern world.
The brilliant minds behind Big Salt and Ovum's other mind-bending white wines from Oregon now bring you a lip-smacking Pinot Noir at an unbelievable price. Being Ksenija and John House, they were presented with an incredible opportunity to showcase Reserve-level Pinot Noir at an affordable, everyday drinking price without sacrificing or shortcutting in the cellar. These grapes were hand harvested, fermented spontaneously, and aged for 18 months in neutral French barrels. The resulting wine is striking in its elegance and purity, red fruited, and the perfect accompaniment to a variety of foods or celebrations.
