  About Us


2020 Award of Excellence Semi-Finalist


Founded by winemaker and owner Brianne Day in the 2012 vintage, Day Wines is a producer of boutique, artisanal bottlings from Applegate Valley in the south to Yamhill-Carlton in the north and numerous other AVAs in between. We source from outstanding organic and biodynamic vineyards to create distinct expressions of our corner of the world.

Meet The Winemaker

Wine came into my life when I was young and, like falling in love with anything or anyone, it happened without intention or direction. When I was 16, our family moved to the Willamette Valley, where I spent days driving through the burgeoning wine landscape. I was immediately attracted to the vineyards–they seemed so exotic and foreign to me. I loved their orderliness and vibrancy.

In my early 20’s, as my curiosity surrounding wine continued to grow, I worked as a bookkeeper and saved money to cure an intense case of wanderlust. I traveled throughout the world’s wine regions for almost two years, documenting the wines I tasted and asking as many questions as I could. When I came home in 2008, I was decided on becoming a winemaker.

The Winemaker

After studying at Chemeketa Community College and working in France, New Zealand and Argentina, I returned to Oregon and set out to work and learn every angle of the wine business. I worked for producers who were making wines in ways I wanted to: The Eyrie Vineyards, Brooks Winery, Grochau Cellars, Belle Pente, and Scott Paul. I also worked at Storyteller Wine Company, learning the retail side of the wine world, and then as a server at Le Pigeon and Little Bird Bistro. I also sold barrels for Bordeaux cooperage, Saury, which allowed for many opportunities to listen and learn from winemakers throughout the Willamette Valley.

In 2012, a friend in the Valley asked if I was interested in buying some fruit from his family’s vineyard. I decided it was the right time to get started and made 125 cases of single vineyard Pinot noir. The wine was noticed by distributors in Chicago and New York City, and I was lucky to be invited to pour at the RAW Natural Wine Fair in London. Since that first vintage, Day Wines has grown from 125 cases in 2012 to 6,000 cases in 2019. Day Wines are now distributed in seventeen states and three countries.

A nod to the traditions of Alsace in northeast France, this wine is a co-fermented field blend of five white varietals that thrive in Willamette Valley. It's the answer to any number of wine mysteries, such as "what do you pair with Thai food (or Indian, French, Sushi, Oysters, etc)?"
