Underwood is owned by Union Wine Company, a partnership created by a veteran of the Oregon wine industry - Ryan Harms - driven by a personal passion for well valued wine and a philosophy that the best wines are a union of gifted winemaking skills and precise farming techniques in the vineyard.
Ryan Harms, owner and executive winemaker has spent time working for some of the most well-respected Pinot Noir producers in Oregon's Willamette Valley, including Bergstrom Wines, Torii Mor Vineyards and Winery and Rex Hill Vineyards. And now, more than a decade after he got his first taste of Oregon's Willamette Valley, he has established a solid reputation for quality winemaking.
"The mission at Union is to pay close attention to the details, while leaving the fussy parts behind. By being efficient about everything, from how we set up the winery to how we make wine, we knew we could successfully create that marriage of craft and small-scale manufacturing. We chose the name Union to honour and bring together the diversity, spirit and character of Oregon that we love."
Underwood draws from the diverse palette of vineyards and wine-growing regions that Oregon offers, to create approachable everyday drinking wines. Underwood is a vibrant and complex wine that brings the Pinot flavour experience to more people. Reflecting the character of the region, the fruit creates a uniquely Oregon Pinot Noir.
