Christophe Baron: from Cayuse back to Champagne

From Oregon’s Walla Walla Valley back to his homeland of Champagne, Christophe Baron has found success with a series of projects under his Bionic Wines brand.

Christophe Baron has been busy. The Champenois transplant to the Pacific Northwest has built a worldwide reputation for his winery Cayuse, in Oregon’s Walla Walla Valley, where he began planting in 1997 and launched his first vintage in 2000.

The Walla Walla Valley AVA is one that crosses state lines. While more often associated with Washington, Baron’s vineyards are all located on the Oregon side. They include Armada, Sur Echalas, The Tribe and Hors Catégorie.
