Hell-o new WEB site for Cameron Winery! We have been working on you for a while now but finally you are ready to reveal yourself.
What you will NOT get on this web site is an ability to purchase wines directly from the winery because we are intent on devoting our time and talents to growing grapes and making wine and leaving the selling part to far more able people in the world of retail. Therefore, you will quickly note that when you click on buying wine, you will be connected to a list of links for retail outlets that carry our wine. If you are a retail outlet in an out-of-state market that carries our wine and you do not find a link to you on this web site, please alert us to that fact and we will put you on!
The new Web site is primarily intended to be informational (and entertaining…in fact sometimes more entertaining than actually informational!). You will note that we are maintaining vineyard and cellar photo galleries and blogs regarding everything that goes on at Cameron Winery (this will include reports on the goats, chickens, geese…Fois and Gras, our honey bees, Guido…the winery policeman, and the human component, as well as the more mundane aspects of growing grapes and making and aging pinot noir, chardonnay, and more!).
There might be occasional videos along with the changing photo gallery and I guarantee that there will be new things to learn whenever you check on this site. Your comments are always welcome, even if they are not appreciated!Share This

I am a bit perplexed by the popularity of a relatively new genre of wine: “Natural Wines”. In my opinion, this is a narrow and arbitrary classification meant to suit the marketing needs of whoever is using it. When I see a cloudy wine and am told “Oh this is a natural wine”, I am compelled to retort “I can’t think of anything more natural than gravity…maybe the winemaker should have waited to rack his wine for bottling!” And when one encounters a wine which is either oxidized or smells of fingernail polish remover or has been brutalized by a lactic acid bacteria infection, sure these are “natural processes” but they also emanate from poor winemaking practices.There’s More... >
2016 was an extremely dry and warm vintage. Because of water stress, the berries were smaller and crop smaller than usual. However, a beneficient rain in early September re-hydrated the fruit and the result is a cellar of very concentrated and wonderfully balanced wines. Get ready for a brilliant 2016 vintage of small production down the road!There’s More... >
Guido, our 18 year old Tuxedoed cat, quietly passed away on August 18. For 17 vintages, Guido was our constant companion in the cellar, in the vineyard, in the yurt.There’s More... >
