Russell Gladhart - Owner

Russell was immediately captivated by the vineyard his parents planted when he was 18. He enjoyed working on the farm during his studies and after graduation. He went on to work for several vineyards and wineries in Oregon and New Zealand, always thinking about how what he was learning could be applied to the vineyard at home. He and Delphine met while working together at an Oregon winery, and the two of them went on to travel and work together in Oregon, New Zealand, and finally Delphine’s home, France. In 2004 they married and moved back to Oregon, forming a partnership with Peter and Emily. Russell enjoys the challenges, unpredictability, and ultimate rewards of working with family and running a small business.

Pinot Gris from Field to Glass
