Maloof Wines is a husband-and-wife winery team based in Forest Grove, Oregon. Originally based in Philadelphia, Bee and Ross Maloof moved to Oregon in 2017. Previously employed as a sommelier, Ross was first introduced to winemaking in 2015 when he worked the harvest at Day Wines in Dundee. The following year he decided to come back with his then-fiancée Bee Selman, a materials engineer. Today the couple bottle a small amount of wines produced naturally.
“This site is farmed by Ken & Becky Jacroux who, after full and successful careers in telecommunications and systems engineering, decided to return to their home state to tend vines. This site near Dallas in the Willamette Valley is currently in conversion to organic farming. The vines themselves were planted in 1976 and are both own rooted and dry farmed. Soils are classic Jory and Loam. The grapes ferment on skins for 22 days before being pressed off into neutral barrel for a ten-month élevage. The wine is then bottled unfined and unfiltered. 179 cases were produced.” – Erik Mercier, Juice Imports
