IT'S A LONG STORY...
PROJECT M is the vision of Meg and Jerry Murray. With over 30 years of collective wine industry experience, our methods and principles have been tested and refined, our vision focused and our judgments sharpened. We use this experience to craft precise and elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Rosé and Riesling from distinctive sites in the Willamette Valley. PROJECT M isn’t the place we have arrived at; it is a new chapter on a long journey.
Our journey has spanned vintage, wineries, regions and continents. It continues with the laughter of our young daughter and the arrival of our son. We are perpetually in awe of life’s interconnections.
Like many, we had something that longed to be made real. We had wines inside of us that needed to be made. PROJECT M is about participating. Being led by life’s rhythm, squeezing out the last drop of potential and making the most of every moment.
Our highest aspiration isn’t to make our dreams come true or live out our values. Our greatest ambition is to have our wines there when you are living yours.
LABEL & ART
PROJECT M was founded in 2016 by Meg & Jerry Murray. The Murrays wanted the labels to reflect flow, movement and intention, values that guide the wines. They chose Mexican artist Tania Zaldivar to bring the idea to life. She created Sand Studies, a series of images for each PROJECT M wine. Her art is parametric, built with processing, and the curves rely on trigonometry. The position of dots is random within limits, so even if the same shape is created again, the placement of dots is different. The Murrays like that the unique nature of the art mimics the individuality of a single vintage.
