“Hummingbird Estate highly-values our relationship with Naumes Custom Crush and Fermentation. They have worked with us along every step of the way from vineyard to bottle. Chris Graves with Naumes Crush is a knowledgeable wine-maker– crafting custom wine for our tasting room from southern Oregon grapes and our estate grapes. Everyone at Naumes from the owners to the office are knowledgeable craftsman, great communicators and big part of growing the southern Oregon wine culture.”
Kristina Alverez, Hummingbird Estate
“It has been a pleasure working with Chris at the Naumes custom crush facility. We have collaborated on every detail from vineyard selection and barrel types to the texture of our labels and final tasting notes. Chris understands Trium’s vision, the quality of the wine we are looking for, and ultimately the creation of an outstanding portfolio of exceptional varietals. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”
Anthony Corallo, Trium Wines
“After touring the New Naumes Custom Processing facility, we were very impressed with the investment that they had made in top of the line capital equipment for their facility. This, coupled with their hiring of winemaker Chris Graves who has a solid technical and practical background in winemaking were instrumental reasons that convinced us to move our winemaking operations to their facility. We are just now tasting the results of our first vintage of wines made at Naumes and are very impressed with the early results.”
Dick Ellis, Pebblestone Cellars
“I have been very impressed with the Naumes Crush facility – the cold storage has allowed me flexibility in harvesting, processing and shipping my fruit to outside clients. Their state-of-the-art equipment has given me much confidence in the quality of sorting and processing. Chris and his staff are meticulous about every aspect of the winemaking process and are clearly focused on maximizing the potential of each and every lot of fruit they receive. Throw in Chris’ friendly, considerate and flexible personality and you have a great combination to achieve a fantastic finished product, consistently, and it’s a pleasure doing business. I am really looking forward to trying more wines made at Naumes Crush, no matter who’s name is on the label.”
