Fullerton Wines explores Oregon’s rich and varied AVAs by expressing the distinct personality of each vineyard and vintage in the bottle. Founded in the Fullerton family garage in 2011, the winery is a deeply personal family collaboration. Winemaker Alex Fullerton entered the industry when his father Eric suggested the career path during a wine tasting in the Willamette Valley after Alex had just graduated from the University of Oregon in 2010. This conversation led to Alex doing a harvest internship at Penner Ash Wine Cellars. which started the next day. During their first vintage in 2011, Alex and Eric made a few barrels of Pinot Noir. Despite the difficult vintage, the wine impressed and Fullerton Wines was born.

The Fullerton Wine Bar & Tasting Room is authentically Pacific Northwest with a Scandinavian heart that brings a taste of Oregon wine country to Portland. Guests come for the hygge hospitality and wines exploring Oregon’s AVAs. Opened in 2017, the Fullerton Wine Bar & Tasting Room is a comfortable and welcoming gathering place for wine lovers to experience the breadth of Fullerton Wines’ selection while enjoying bistro fare. Tasting room patrons have the option of indoor or outdoor seating under covered dining areas.
