The winery is part of our terroir
The form and function of a winery can have a big impact on the quality of the wine, as well as on the quality of life of the winemakers who work in it! When planning our winery in 2008, Russell and Delphine drew on their experience working in many different wineries in Oregon, France, and New Zealand.
Some of our experiences were good, like the cool, insulated cellars at Lemelson Vineyards in Carlton. Others were not so great, like the glassy smooth floors of a Burgundian winery where we slipped and literally slid through the vintage.
But in the end, our winery is a beautiful and efficient space that we feel lucky to work in, and we think you can taste the results in your glass.
