Date: 04/27/11

Domaine Serene has appointed Erik Kramer as winemaker. Kramer has made wine in the Willamette Valley for many years and brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and talent to this position.

“We are very pleased to have Erik joining Domaine Serene,” said owner, Ken Evenstad, “Erik is a well respected member of the winemaking community in the Willamette Valley. I look forward to having him lead our production team and his contribution to our continued success.”

Kramer’s lifelong passion for science, and his appreciation of fine wine, led him to obtain a Postgraduate Diploma in Viticulture and Enology from Lincoln University in Christchurch, New Zealand. In addition to his winemaking experience in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Kramer has also worked for several well reputed wineries in New Zealand and Washington.

About Domaine Serene
Grace and Ken Evenstad founded Domaine Serene Vineyards and Winery in 1989 when they purchased 42 acres in the Dundee Hills of Oregon to plant, grow and produce ultra premium Pinot Noir. They are involved in every aspect of growing, producing and marketing their wines. Now celebrating the 22nd Anniversary of Domaine Serene, they own 462 acres of land in Yamhill County in the Willamette Valley of Oregon; 150 acres planted to vine. In addition to Pinot Noir, which is about 95% of the wine produced, they also make Chardonnay and Syrah. Their wines have won many accolades and awards, including besting Domaine de la Romanee Conti in blind tastings, being called " The Chateau Lafite of Oregon" by Anthony Dias Blue, The Best Oregon Pinot Noir by the Wall St Journal, and outstanding ( top rating) Oregon producer by Robert Parker. Recently, Domaine Serene’s 2008 “Grace Vineyard” Pinot Noir received the highest score (97 Points) ever awarded an Oregon wine by Wine Spectator magazine.
