Our Winemaker

Jacques Tardy was born into a love of wine. As the eighth generation of a Burgundian winemaking family from Nuit Saint Georges, Jacques pursued wine making and vineyard management from a young age. After studying Viticulture and Enology at Lycee Viticole de Beaune, Jacques moved to California in 1982. By 1990, he had made his way to the Willamette Valley. Jacques brings his Burgundian heritage and his years of experience to Halem Heights and carefully produces wines of elegance, balance, and intention, utilizing our Halem Heights Estate Vineyard and other prestigious vineyards in the Dundee Hills and other AVAs within the Willamette Valley.
