Great wine speaks profoundly, a universal language transcending any one culture. Hailing from northern Europe, the Fullerton family speaks many languages, and delights in sharing the language of wine with others. Fullerton Wines crafts elegant and distinctive Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that transport you to Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
A family of enophiles, the Fullertons can trace their love of wine to Eric, who was first introduced to wine growing and production during his teenage years when he worked as a cellar hand in Germany.
In 2010, Alex Fullerton graduated from the University of Oregon with an Economics degree. Alex and Eric were tasting wine at Penner-Ash Wine Cellars and began discussing home-brewing and the process of fermentation. Eventually, Alex was offered a job as an intern, and later became a cellar hand at Penner-Ash. His passion ignited. In the meantime, Alex gained invaluable experience working in at Drylands Winery in New Zealand. And Although the experience didn’t align with the handcrafted winemaking tradition in Oregon, he came back to Oregon to gain more experience in the wine industry.
