About This Wine:
Et Fille, which translates to “and daughter,” was founded in Oregon’s Willamette Valley by Jessica Mozeico and her father Howard in 2003. Jessica grew up helping her dad with his winemaking hobby in the family garage, and after graduating from college and working in the biotechnology field, she decided to go into the wine business — with her dad, of course.
Their home base is Oregon’s Willamette Valley, one of the world’s most renowned regions for growing top-quality Pinot Noir grapes. The Mozeicos source fruit from several vineyards around the valley.
“We love blending Pinot Noir from multiple vineyards,” Jessica says. “It epitomizes the confluence of art and science. Our goal with this blend is to allow the complexity of the Willamette Valley to reveal itself in an honest representation of the vintage.” For the 2012 vintage, that representation is a wine that’s rich, round and long-finishing.
