James Frey in his McMinnville, OR studio

Trisaetum was my next stop. This is a unique winery/art gallery showcasing the exceptional talents of owner James Frey. Trisaetum is a must-see. Frey is a photojournalist and painter, and his riveting artwork is on display and for sale adjacent to the winery tasting room.”

                                                            – Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast


“Frey is a rare winemaker indeed, who carves out time for a second career as an artist of big, bold paintings on framed canvases”

                                                            –Terry Richard, The Oregonian


“James Frey, a prolific painter and winemaker, has succeeded in the unlikely medium of Oregon Riesling”

                                                            – Bruce Schoenfeld, Travel & Leisure magazine


“Besides Trisaetum’s portfolio of more than a dozen Rieslings and Pinot Noirs, tasting room visitors are delighted to discover James’s riveting vineyard-inspired artwork, displayed in an adjacent 1,500-square-foot art gallery. With vineyard dirt and Pinot Noir sometimes used as elements, James demonstrates that his art can be as wonderfully expressive as his wines.”
