Domaine Serene Honored as Flagship Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir Receives Accolades

It is an honor for us at Domaine Serene to have our Evenstad Reserve be recognized on the world wide stage of wines as Wine Spectator's #3 wine, and the top American wine in 2013. - Owners, Ken and Grace Evenstad

Domaine Serene is pleased to announce that their flagship wine, the 2010 Evenstad Reserve, received 95 points and is number 3 on Wine Spectator’s list of top 100 wines of the year. Winemaker Erik Kramer states, “This is definitely good news. This was a tough vintage and we honestly had to make some very difficult decisions to make a wine worthy of carrying the Evenstad Reserve name.”

Consistently excellent from vintage to vintage, the Evenstad Reserve is the defining standard by which all of their Pinot Noirs are measured. A true illustration of the art of blending, the Evenstad Reserve is a wonderfully complex and elegant wine that shows a harmonious balance of structure, richness and acidity. With clonal variation and site driven diversity, they craft this wine to precise and exacting standards year after year. The wine can be found at a selection of retail shops and restaurants throughout most of the United States, globally or online at

Erik continued “Many thanks go to Ken and Grace for remaining true to their vision. Speaking as a winemaker, it's great to work at a place with terrific vineyards, a world class facility, and most importantly, awesome people. I feel fortunate to work at a winery where tough choices can be made in order to stand up for quality.”

Ken and Grace Evenstad, owners of Domaine Serene shared, “It is an honor for us at Domaine Serene to have our Evenstad Reserve be recognized on the world wide stage of wines as Wine Spectator’s #3 wine, and the top American wine in 2013.”
