00 Wines is a global luxury wine house that specializes in rare Pinot Noir and Chardonnay bottlings from Burgundy, Champagne and the Willamette Valley region of Oregon. The winery was officially founded by the Hermann family in 2015, and has hit the ground running, producing world-class wines ever since. Chris Hermann stewards the winemaking, and Kathryn Hermann leads the creative and marketing team.
00 Wines also uses the black chardonnay production technique – a method practiced over the last 100 years in Burgundy, which intentionally uses oxidation. Chris explains the process as “once the Chardonnay grapes are pressed no sulfites are added so the juice in the press pan immediately oxidizes turning a dark brown color. The turbid juice, rich in suspended solids, goes directly into French oak barrels without any settling or racking. The result of black Chardonnay making for 00 Wines creates a savory and complex American-made Chardonnay with maximum tannins extracted from the grape skins.”
Moreover, as a producer of luxury Chardonnay, Chris highlights that while the best Chardonnay has essentially been tackled in the Old World, the Willamette Valley has access to the best Chardonnay in the entire world. “00 Wines intends to push the boundaries and produce the best high-quality Chardonnay in the new world through old-world methods,” Chris says. “We feel we have the opportunity to be in the pantheon of iconic great Chardonnays of the world.”
“This stunning wine instantly bursts open with aromas of lemon peel, crushed stone, peach, gun flint, tangerine, mint, and crushed seashell jump from the glass. On the palate there are delicious flavors of citrus, crushed almond, honeysuckle and orchard fruits. The palate displays a gorgeous medium to full body with lots of minerality and salinity, followed by a creamy texture which is underlined by lovely acidity on the finish.”
