Division represents a new generation of winemakers that are looking beyond the status quo to create unique styles of wine, with a purpose, a story – and, without barriers.

Division Winemaking Company is a Portland, Oregon based winery founded in 2010 by Kate Norris and Thomas Monroe.

Inspired by the wineries of Loire, Beaujolais, Burgundy and the Northern Rhone where they first learned winemaking and viticulture, Division crafts Oregon and Washington wines including Pinot Noir, Gamay, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, while constantly experimenting with new varietals and projects.

Determined to make approachable and balanced wines through minimal intervention, the winemakers work with terroir expressive vineyards, many of which are organic and/or Biodynamic®.

Division Winemaking Company includes the flagship Division label, the approachable Division-Villages label, Nightshade and Gamine labels, both personal expressions of each winemaker, and many other projects
