Housed in a fully modern winemaking facility in Dundee, Oregon, Voix de la Vigne wines are made by French-born winemaker Bruno Corneaux. The wines are crafted to express the purity of each grape variety. These are elegant wines, with no use of new oak, and relatively low alcohol levels. The grapes are sourced from a variety of vineyard sites from both volcanic and sedimentary soils. These vineyards are under the viticultural control of Bruno Corneaux and his team. Voix de la Vigne wines are dressed up to evoke classics from the old world. The label is not only pleasing to the eye, but serves also as an indication of what the buyer can expect from the wine. The intent is to ‘speak’ to the wine buyer who is interested in wine of elegance and finesse – the hallmark of the Voix de la Vigne brand.
