Arriving in Oregon by way of New York and California, Brian was a homebrewer itching to get his hands on his own vineyard. After one too many California earthquakes, Brian and his wife, Jill, moved to Oregon in 1992 to follow their dreams. Belle Pente (‘beautiful slope’) is as charming as it sounds. One of the first fully biodynamic wineries in Oregon, Belle Pente is buzzing with goats, lambs, chickens, and even a pig or two. Brian is a quiet hero of the Willamette Valley – though you’ve probably had his ‘Belle Oiseau’ as the house cuvée at Le Pigeon and Little Bird – and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the holidays with him.
