Argyle at The Kitchen at Middleground Farms

We are so excited for our Winter Winemaker’s Dinner Series and sharing our kitchen for a fun and informative demonstration cooking class all about pairing Oregon wines with seasonal food! For this dinner, we welcome Argyle’s Craig Erion.

Craig Erion, Argyle Winery

Craig Erion,
Trade Sales & Marketing Manager

In 2014, Craig came to the Willamette Valley to attend Oregon Pinot Camp and did what he wasn’t supposed to do; he stayed. With years of restaurant and wine experience under his belt, Craig took on the role of Hospitality Director at the then newly renovated Argyle Tasting House in Dundee. After three years of leading a stellar Tasting House team, he handed over the reins and took on the role of Trade Sales and Marketing Manager. Coupling his time as a restaurant sommelier with his experience at Argyle Winery has positioned him to be the ideal ambassador for Oregon’s Original Sparkling Wine House. While his main focus is Oregon, he has occasionally been allowed out in the world to bring Argyle to his hometown of New York and his adopted hometown of Washington DC. One of Craig’s professional goals is to change the mindset of “Sparkling wine is fancy and for special occasions only”.

“Sparkling wine is for special occasions and caviar and oysters, but it’s also for cheeseburgers on a Tuesday.”  – Craig

About Argyle

In 1987, Argyle was founded by pioneering vintner Rollin Soles, with a belief that the cool-climate of Oregon’s Willamette Valley was ideal for producing sparkling wines. Our winemaking program now includes sparkling wines, Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs and Rieslings, which have earned acclaim for their elegance, vineyard-driven character and uncommon ageability.

While Argyle has quietly established a reputation as an Oregon icon, we have remained deeply rooted in the Willamette Valley community, and true to the grower-first ideals that inspired our founding. Today, our estate program includes more than 400 acres, with a remarkably diverse tapestry of microclimates, clonal and rootstock selections, elevations, exposures and soil types.

Argyle’s winemaker Nate Klostermann and his team work in extremely small lots to preserve the nuance and complexity of our estate fruit. The team is continually experimenting with innovations such as skin soaking, whole clusters, harvesting at various ripeness levels and fine-tuning the dosage program.

At its heart, Argyle’s history is a quintessential Oregon tale, complete with the promise of staking claim to new spaces, taking risks, and embracing opportunities and possibilities. It is also a story of a deep and meaningful relationship with the land, with the Oregon winemaking community, and with the wine lovers who have long championed the regions beautiful and distinctive wines.

The Menu & Pairings
