Goodfellow Family Cellars

Oregon: Heart, Soul & Terroir

Marcus Goodfellow is one of the most talented winemakers in Oregon, joined by the equally talented and knowledgeable Megan Joy. The wines reflect the minds of this talented pair, showing microscopic understanding of the potential in the terroirs of the Willamette Valley.

These are profound wines, both white and red, that are made in a style that’s distinctly savory—no fruit bombs here. Together, Marcus and Megan craft wines that continually improve—both in the cellar and vintage to vintage. We love the wines for their coiled power and Burgundian structure, and we stack them abundantly in our personal cellars to adore for decades to come.… Read the rest

Paolo Scavino: Elite Barolo and Bargain Pricing

Special Feature
Wines of Paolo Scavino – On Sale Now!

Barolo just keeps getting better and better. Hard to believe that statement could seem remotely possible given that these wines have gained numerous collectors and acolytes since the middle of the 20th century. Fans of Nebbiolo’s grandest appellation are facing a string of incoming vintages that will redefine the quality index and history of the region and provide ample drinking for years to come.

Paolo Scavino and their 2019 Barolos are perhaps the peak crest of this wave that you’ll be wanting to catch. The estate Barolo bottling has received overwhelming reception by the Piedmont loyal and global critic circuit, while the single vineyard cru releases are as magnificent as ever.… Read the rest

JD Pabiot: Perfection in Pouilly-Fumé

Special Feature
Wines of Jonathan-Didier Pabiot

Many appellations around the world are well known and beloved for their distinctive styles of Sauvignon Blanc: Sancerre, New Zealand, and the oft-ignored Saint Bris in Burgundy (why, yes, Burgundy has an appellation that includes Savvy-B!).
But there is only one region that is whispered of reverently and can only rarely be found on shelves: Pouilly-Fumé. Made cult by Didier Dagueneau’s benchmark Silex bottling, you can be forgiven for expecting most top-rates PFs to set you back somewhere in the three figures a bottle range.
Would you even believe me if I said you could find an illustrious producer, one who is of the only 1% of producers in the region to work organically and biodynamically (the first in the region for both), one who wows the reviewers, and, most importantly, one whose top two bottlings have yet to crack a $70 ceiling at our shop?… Read the rest

“Maison Joseph Drouhin”
Joseph Drouhin Griottes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits 2009 750ml $579 special, 2 bottles available
Wine Advocate 94 Points “The 2009 Griotte-Chambertin is beautiful, elegant and totally weightless. This shows gorgeous subtlety and inner juiciness through to the nuanced finish. Griottes, spices and flowers linger on the close. My sense is this is holding a lot back in reserve at the moment. The Griotte-Chambertin is made from estate fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.”

Championship Bottle


“Saul Mutchnick makes small batches of stellar white wines at a corrugated tin outpost in the Eola-Amity Hills. For me, they are among the best in Oregon.”
-Michael Alberty, The Oregonian

Inspired by the crisp whites of the Friuli region in Northeast Italy, Championship Bottle combs through the Willamette’s best cool climate sites to find the unique terroirs that infuse the wines texture, minerality, and elegant acidity that they are known for.
