Christophe Baron’s family dates back to the mid 17th Century in Charly sur Marne in Champagne. He studied viticulture in Champagne and Burgundy. After meeting an American in Burgundy, Christophe was convinced to head west to Oregon and Washington and discovered their stony vineyards. He bought his first vineyard, Cayuse in 1997, now farming biodynamically. Christophe has unstoppable energy, ambition, curiosity, and a respect for the land. His Bionic Wine’s portfolio is mind-boggling including Champagne Christophe Baron, Cayuse, Hors Categorie, Horsepower, and No Girls. Christophe’s wines have reached cult status along with critical acclaim. The question to Christophe— is all that enough and what’s next?
