In 2002, after 17 years working in the business for others internationally and in Oregon, I started this company with a small amount of money in my back pocket, a lot of experience and passion, and sufficient ignorance of what I was up against.

Today our multi-faceted wine company is one of the largest in the state. We own 214 acres of vineyard and benefit from the work of more than 30 full-time, dedicated employees, as well as dozens of other part-time and seasonal workers. All have made a significant mark on the success of the company.

We love what we do, and we love each other (we like to call ourselves a family.) We’re confident that you’ll taste the passion behind every bottle we produce.

As a small business owner who has taken significant risk, I appreciate your support and patronage. And on behalf of my fantastic staff, we all say thank you!
