". . . the young Alex Fullerton is a winemaker to watch in Oregon."

- Katie Kelly Bell, Forbes Magazine, November 2016

"The attention Alex has paid to honing his craft is evidenced in the heightened complexity of the winery’s Chardonnay and Pinot Noir."

Oregon Wine Press, December 2017

 

"And they certainly were soulful wines on many levels, from their flavors to their story – a story that actually goes back to World War II. . . . As I tasted these wines and read about the owner, Eric Fullerton, I could not help but think of The Pianist . . . ."

- Cathrine Todd, Dame Wine, December 2016

 

"Not a typical “cherry bomb,” Five FACES tastes of caramel and roasted coffee in an Old World nod to winemaking."

- Julie Arnan, 425 Magazine, November 2016

 

 ". . . wines like the Fullerton “Three Otters” Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Rosé 2016 show why these pink delights are perfect for holiday parties and meals, particularly the feast of which many of us will be partaking Thursday. With gorgeous, striking notes of citrus and fresh strawberry on the nose and palate, fresh mineral goodness and a mouthwatering finish, this is a wine for all seasons."

- Bill Ward, Minneapolis Star Tribune, November 2017
