“There oughta be a law!”  bellows the typical French vigneron when reading the ingredients to Lange’s unconventional “Bricolage.”  Yeah, maybe where you come from, pal.  In France, every wine has to be fashioned according to “INAO wine law”, but not here – on the West Coast, the winemakers can play to their hearts content and fashion fun and funky red blends like The Prisoner, Pessimist and Bricolage –all genre-busting, innovative wines that take inspiration from all over.  Bricolage should be called “Brico Suave” because it combines French and Spanish styling in a way that’s rich, earthy and all-too-smooth, playing between dark black fruits and velvety, toasty depth.  This is a dunk for weeknight meals and the wine carries with a fun sense of discovery that makes it a hit for dinner parties. 

About the wine

What’s Bricolage like?  That’s a question that will keep the wheels spinning in the minds of wine lovers.  This one-of-a-kind red is broadly inspired by the richer, country reds of Southern France and Northern Spain, but it also shows flashes of Italian and Willamette Valley influence.  That’s exactly what the Lange family is aiming for, as they dive headfirst into the bounty of Oregon’s surging wine scene.  Not just Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, Oregon’s now the home of well-regarded vineyards growing everything from Malbec to Gruner Veltliner and all the fun and unusual grapes in between.  That’s where “Domaine Trouvere” came into being, allowing the Pinot Royalty at Lange to dabble in the next big thing without mixing the message.  Just the wine is mixed here – and to great effect, as the blend is medium bodied with dark fruit shadings, plenty of mocha and a lovely mix of violet pastille, cherryish zip and a hint of leather tying it all together.  This has a lot of personality and keeps things interesting for those who’ve had their fill of mono-varietal wines.

About the winery

Don and Wendy Lange founded their winery in the Dundee Hills of Oregon’s northern Willamette Valley. The year 1987 marked the Langes’ first vintage and consisted of the three varietals they embrace today: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay. New-world pioneers in the production of Pinot Gris, Lange Estate was the first to release a barrel-fermented reserve--an effort Matt Kramer of the Wine Spectator calls “a bench-mark bottling.” Don Lange’s work as a winemaker has been termed “brilliant” by Hugh Johnson, and Wine Enthusiast proclaimed Lange Estate to be “one of the great Pinot Noir producers in the United States.” Domaine Trouvere is their project that allows them to showcase the fantastic non-Burgundian grapes that are popping up all over Oregon, promising a bright and varied future for this burgeoning growing region.

About the winemaker, Jesse Lange      

Jesse Lange, Don’s son, joined the winemaking team in 2004, continuing the legacy of Lange Estate. Jesse also holds the title of General Manager and serves on several industry boards. Currently, the father/son duo bottles six different Pinot Noirs, focusing on terroir through small lot, artisanal wine-making philosophies.

94-95 points, Julie Tesar, Certified Sommelier 

"Juicy and plush with ripe flavors of plum preserves, blueberry jam, and cassis with complementary notes of vanilla pudding, cinnamon toast, and toasted coconut. On the palate, toasty spice gives way to deep dark berries, baked black cherry, black tea, and roasted mushrooms.  A rich, ripe crowd-pleasing blend with a bold dark fruit profile, powerful structure, and spicy finish. Pair with hearty meals like cassoulet, braised pork shoulder or roasted duck."

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.
