Great guy. A real Oregon wine pioneer.

I see also that David Bruce has died.

He did so many innovative things in the 60s and 70s.

Oh no - a super guy. RIP - I first met Bob when he was at Sokol Blosser -

RIP Bob McRitchie. I’ve only had one or two of his wines but he was definitely a seminal influence for Willamette Valley wines.

His 1983 Pinots were stellar.
