Wine Crush - S03E03
In this episode, we’ll uncork two new wine stories. The first is about a winery which perpetuates the hand-in-hand collaboration of its co-founders. And the second centers on a three-year-long process between four friends to make their craft what it is today. Guests Jessica Mozeico, Co-Founder & Winemaker, Et Fille Wines Nick Marshall, Co-Owner & Winemaker, Benedetto Vineyards Guest Biographies Jessica Mozeico Jessica Mozeico co-founded Willamette Valley winery Et Fille Wines, which means “and daughter”, with her father Howard Mozeico in 2003. Jessica grew up helping her dad with his winemaking hobby in their garage. She fell in love with wine, though it was a passion she cultivated from the sidelines as she pursued an undergraduate degree from Hamilton College, an MBA from Wharton at the University of Pennsylvania, and a career in biotechnology marketing. After years of leading biotechnology drug launches and marketing teams, Jessica founded Mozeico Consulting to provide strategic planning services. Finally, Jessica and Howard decided to co-found Et Fille Wines, where they ran the winery together until Howard’s untimely death. Jessica learned everything about winemaking from her dad. Today, Jessica operates the business, making elegantly complex wines inspired by her late father’s legacy and her daughter’s future. She says, “I have the honor and responsibility to carry Et Fille forward in a manner that is consistent with my dad’s vision, values, and palate. I will continue building the legacy of Et Fille for my daughter.” She feels fortunate to be part of the collaborative and encouraging Oregon wine community. Nick Marshall & Lisa Marshall Nick is a graduate of “THE” University of Southern Oregon in Ashland, and Lisa a graduate of Cal Poly Pomona. They both competed in sports at the college level. Nick has been a life-long Oregonian and Lisa has lived in several wine growing regions on the west coast. Together, their knowledge and passion for wine continues to grow and they are excited to share this new venture with you.

Wine Crush - S03E02
In this episode, we hear one story centered on second careers, a well-planned next chapter, and the pursuit of a shared passion. Then we uncork a second story coming from one of a multi-generational line of wine entrepreneurs, who focus on an Argentinean approach to fermentation. Guests Bill Sweat, Founder & Winemaker, Winderlea Winery JP Valot, Owner & Winemaker, Valcan Cellars Guest Biographies Bill Sweat & Donna Morris The kernels of Winderlea were spun over milestone birthdays and anniversaries, travels to Bill Sweat & Donna Morris's favorite wine regions, and nightly dinners with a bottle of wine after good and not so good days at the office. In the early 90s they fell in love with Pinot Noir. Its elegance and sensuality – and the beautiful way it paired with a range of foods delighted them. As they tasted through wines from across the country they found the characteristics they most loved in Oregon Pinot Noir. They believe it is due in large part to Oregon’s unique climate and soils paired with the heritage of artisanal craftsmanship and an obsession with making small lots of the highest quality wine. On a practical level they found the Oregon wine community to be a collaborative one – where newcomers are welcomed, tutored and expected to perfect their craft. In 2006 they relocated from Boston and have made Dundee, Oregon their home. They are committed to continuing the traditions of responsible stewardship of the land and the highest quality artisan winemaking. JP Valot Juan Pablo (JP) was born in Mendoza, the heart of Argentina’s wine country, and completed a five year degree in Agricultural Sciences with a focus in Enology and Viticulture at the National University of Cuyo. After graduation, JP worked as an enologist for Esmeralda, one of the Catena wineries. In 2001, he came to Oregon looking for new challenges and was attracted by Oregon’s growing wine industry. Shortly after, he met his wife Doris and both decided to settle in Oregon. JP worked for Willamette Valley Vineyards, Soter Vineyards, and Dobbes Family Estate. JP’s qualifications include 16 years of winemaking experience between 19 vintages in Oregon and Argentina. He has played multiple roles in Oregon’s wine industry including winemaker, vineyard manager, and educator, and was appointed by the Governor to be a member of the Oregon Wine Board. JP is a well-rounded wine professional who understands the winemaking process from the vine to glass. He brings strong educational and professional experience; but most importantly, he brings his passion and commitment to making high-quality wine.

Wine Crush - S03E01
Join us for the premiere of Wine Crush Season 3! In this episode, we uncork two unique wine stories. The first comes from a daughter and mother operation rooted in tradition, adventure and good dirt. The other centers on a family-owned producer of small-lot, handcrafted, estate wines, with a special emphasis on world-class Pinot Noir. Guests Kate Taylor, Operations & Vineyard Manager, One Love Cellars Dan Warnshuis, Owner/Winemaker, Utopia Vineyard Winery Biographies One Love Cellars This adventure started in 2006, in an unfinished basement with a bumper crop of raspberries in Michigan. The fermentation obsession brought the Taylor family from Michigan and Montana, to Oregon in 2010. After education, clearing land and getting to know their industry neighbors, they planted our first vineyard block in 2012. At the heart of their farming practices are sustainability, stewardship and premium quality fruit. The 16 acres of estate vines thrive at One Heart Vineyards, in the volcanic soils of the South Salem hills. One Love Cellars’ Pinot Noir, Albariño, limited production Bubbles and some other wonderful whites and red blends are luscious, lively & vibrant. Delicate barrel notes on the reds, lend to an appealing, lingering finish that continue to tell their distinct story. These mostly estate grown, Northwest wines are an incredible value in bottle and a treat for any palate. They show well solo, accent a great meal, company or stand out for a special occasion. The attention to detail in the craft and care of their wines can be tasted in each pour. Utopia Vineyard Utopia Vineyard is the embodiment of a dream that began in the mind of its owner, Dan Warnshuis. He and his family live on the property, in that big house you’ll see as you turn off of Ribbon Ridge Road. After college, Dan returned to his home in California and began a successful career in Silicon Valley. Along the way, he opened a retail store in Napa and began spending time with Napa Valley growers and winemakers. Utopia Estate Vineyard was born in 2002 after talks with Oregon growers at the International Pinot Noir Celebration led Dan on a search for a vineyard site. He found a parcel located just above the old Bergstrom farm on Ribbon Ridge that seemed ideal, and subsequent soil tests proved it to be so. The Utopia Estate Vineyard is perfectly situated at an elevation of five hundred feet in the heart of the Ribbon Ridge Appellation in the Northern Willamette Valley in Yamhill County, Oregon. It consists of a total of 16.8 acres of sloping contiguous south-facing hillsides of Willakenzie soils. Dan’s first commercial vintage produced just 413 cases in 2006. It was a good start, but the 2007 was even better, winning the Grand Award of Excellence, the Gold Medal in the 2010 Oregon Wine Awards for Pinot Noir over $35. Subsequent vintages have continued to improve and the first private reserve release, Paradise, was produced as part of the 2009 vintage. In addition to world class Pinot Noir, Utopia also produces Pinot Blanc, made exclusively from certified grapes grown in the Willamette Valley and Pinot Noir Rose. New Chardonnay plantings were added in 2010 and a well appointed tasting room with outdoor seating was built that same year.

Wine Crush - S02E13
Join us for the Season 2 finale of Wine Crush! In this episode, we center on a husband and wife who just fell in love with the people, culture, and the stories of all things wine. In addition, we have a second story which comes from a winemaker taking over some big shoes, but entering the position with quite the pedigree. Guests Kelly Robinson, Co-founder/Business Development, Lev Livet Wines Tres Burns, Winemaker/Operations Manager, White Rose Estate Guest Biographies: Ryan & Kelly Robinson Ryan & Kelly met in 2012 and have been partners in life ever since. They decided to take on this venture as most do, drinking wine in their kitchen, after a long day of work. Kelly had been in the corporate world since graduating from college in 2009, and wanted to take her learned sales and business relations experience to a new level. Ryan & Kelly had frequented Oregon wine country and Napa Valley, only to fall in love with the people, the culture, the stories and all things wine. They knew they had to be a part of that community and here they are! Their journey would not be complete without their dog Gary. He's a huge part of their life and is Lev Livet's official wine dog. Because what's a winery without one? Tres Burns Tres is a native Oregonian and Newport High School graduate who spent 10 years in the technology industry before turning his attention to wine. He studied enology at Oregon State University before accepting a position in 2011 to work under the tutelage of Anthony King, who was the head winemaker at Lemelson Vineyards in Carlton at the time. He then spent four years at Brittan Vineyards, where he had the opportunity to help make their wines as well as those of several other Willamette Valley wineries, including Winderlea Vineyards and Youngberg Hill.

Wine Crush - S02E12
In this episode, we hear a tale of a new vision for a previous estate that involves enriching the local community. Then we touch on a story from a small-production winery that strives to make the finest German and Alsatian-style wines in Oregon. Guests Sara Jivanjee, General Manager, Archer Vineyard Barnaby Tuttle, Co-Owner/Winemaker, Teutonic Wine Company Winery Biographies Archer Vineyard In 1989, Don and Grace Archer planted a vineyard on the southern slope of Parrett Mountain. At that time, the Oregon wine industry was still young, a little-known collection of wine enthusiasts making a go of it in the Willamette Valley. Grace had grown up on a vineyard in California and saw the potential for producing wine in Yamhill County. Don Archer, the namesake of Archer Vineyard, lived with his wife on the property he planted for many years. In 2005, Saj and Pauline Jivanjee purchased the 8-acre property and brought with them a new vision. With the help of family and close friends, they converted the old Archer barn into a cutting-edge winery and tasting room, and set up a business committed to enriching the local community. Today, Archer Vineyard handcrafts a small production of estate-grown Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, and gathers people around creative events that unlock the pleasures of wine—including music, art, and enjoyment of the natural environment. Teutonic Wine Company It all started in 2002 when Barnaby was the wine buyer at Papa Haydn Restaurant in Portland’s southeast location. German wine importer Ewald Moseler, showed him 14 different Rieslings from Germany’s famed Mosel wine region. Barnaby bought all 14 and started one of the largest German wine lists in Portland. That same night he told his wife, Olga that he needed to learn how to make wines that are as expressive to terroir (expression of the place the grapes are grown) as these Rieslings. Out of this came Teutonic Wine Co., now a small production winery in Oregon. Their wines are German and Alsatian in style, made with grapes from cool-climate sites. Host: Heidi Moore, Wine Enthusiast

Wine Crush - S02E10
In this episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through the stories of two local winemakers. The first shows how one little phone call can open up the viticultural opportunity of a lifetime. And the second comes from a winery that describes their wines in 3 words: acid-driven, transparent, and adventurous. Guests Jared Etzel, Winemaker, Domaine Roy Jason Hanson, Winemaker, Hanson Vineyards Guest Biographies Jared Etzel Jared grew up on the Beaux Freres Vineyard and was schooled in Enology and Viticulture at Oregon State University. He worked vintages at Cristom and Brick House Vineyards before traveling to Spain where he worked at Artadi & Clos Erasmus. Before developing Domaine Roy, Jared moved to California where he worked with Fisher Vineyards, Kapcsandy, and Blankiet. Jared’s inspiration comes from the many organic and biodynamic estate vineyards making soulful wines specific to their site and vintage. Jason Hanson Jason did his undergraduate studies in upstate New York, and then obtained a Master’s in politics from George Washington University. For a while he had his own company doing political research. He lived in D.C. for 14 years before finally deciding that he did not really enjoy being that closely involved with politics. He had a true desire to get back to the Pacific Northwest. His father had retired from teaching and they started talking. While it took a few years to figure it all out, they then we got some grapes in the ground and in 2005 got their commercial winemaking license. Eleven varieties are now in the ground on the fourth generation family farm. Currently about nine and a half acres of vines accounts for the majority of their grape production. Butte Creek has washed away much of the soil and left behind two distinct areas: sandy, rocky ground where you will find their Pommard, Dijon 115, Wadenswil and Riesling blocks.

Wine Crush - S02E09
In this episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through the stories of two family-owned and operated wineries. The first maintains a small annual production as part of their commitment to offer the highest quality wines at exceptional values; and the second is the largest grape producer in the Elkton Oregon AVA, whose core belief is that Oregon wineries should aim to be Old World in the New World. Guests Beth Klingner, Director of Sales & Marketing/Winemaker, Dion Vineyard Tyler Bradley, Winemaker, Bradley Vineyards Winery Biographies Dion Vineyard Just outside of greater Portland, off the Hillsboro Highway 219, nestled in the Chehalem Mountains of the northern Willamette Valley, is Dion’s 60-acre vineyard dating back to 1976 and their small winery and tasting room. Their family-owned and operated enterprise maintains an intentionally small annual production as part of their commitment to offer the highest quality wines at exceptional values. Winemaker Kevin Johnson, founded the winery in 2007 and carries on third-generation winegrowing traditions. His grandfather began the legacy by growing grapes and producing wines near Sunnyside, Washington. For over 45 years, Kevin and his family have been growing wine grapes in their little slice of beautiful Oregon, just outside the city. Their production includes primarily Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. They also offer in limited quantities: Sparkling Wines, Tempranillo, Rose, Viognier, and Chardonnay. Kevin and his wife Beth Klingner handcraft around 1000 cases per year. They still provide premium wine grapes to other Willamette Valley wineries from their 60 acres Bradley Vineyards Bradley Vineyards was founded in 1983 by brothers John and Richard Bradley. With the helping hands of family and friends, nearly 30 acres of Pinot Noir, Gewurtztraminer and Riesling grapes were planted in the South and West facing hills of Elkton, Oregon. For the first 17 years, John developed as a viticulturist, and sold the entirety of his crop to wineries around the state of Oregon. But when friends Mike and Vonnie Landt moved to town and built their winery, River’s Edge, a partnership began allowing John to start producing a small amount of wine under the Bradley Vineyards label. In the early 2000s, John expanded the vineyard by planting a small block of Baco Noir grapes, as well as grafting Baco Noir onto a portion of mature Gewurtztraminer vines. He also introduced a small block of Pommard, a clone of Pinot Noir. After John’s untimely passing in 2014, the Vineyards continue to thrive under the leadership of his wife, Bonnie. Their son, Tyler cares for the vineyard and makes the wines at the River’s Edge Winery facilities on the west end of Elkton.

Wine Crush - S02E08
In this episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through two diverse wine stories. The first centers on two interconnected wineries and their processes; and the second shows the culmination of a collaborative effort between the wineries mentioned in the first story. Guests Melissa Burr, Vice President of Winemaking, Stoller Family Estate Kate Payne-Brown, Assistant Winemaker, Stoller Family Estate Katie Santora, Winemaker, Chehalem Wines Winery Biographies Stoller Family Estate Stoller’s LEED Gold and LIVE certified winery combines progressive, environmentally-friendly design with gentle, traditional winemaking practices that minimize their environmental impact. Their gravity flow process offers a more gentle approach to winemaking, allowing a reduction in the amount of energy required for wine production. These factors make them one of the premier sustainable wineries in the Pacific Northwest, and they are proud to be the first LEED Gold Certified winery in the world. They harvest, process, ferment and age each individual section of fruit separately. This process allows the ability to highlight the unique characteristics and extraordinary diversity of flavors created by the age of the vines, vine density, and micro-climate within each individual section. The goal is to produce elegant wines that reflect the individuality of the site as well as their place within the Dundee Hills. Their wines are beautifully textured and layered with fine, silky tannins, bright red fruit, hints of earth and spice, mouthwatering acidity that will help age the wines for many years to come. Chehalem Wines Chehalem boasts a rich history of innovation, sustainability, and exceptional quality. Known for their single-vineyard Pinot Noirs and a progressive approach to white wines, they firmly believe that outstanding wine should accompany every course of a meal. Their wine quality is determined by the cool macro-climate of the Willamette Valley, vintage, soil profiles, vineyard micro-climates, and winemaking style. Their job is to let the terroir speak and to make the winemaker imprint as transparent as possible. The climate and winemaking style reveal wines that emphasize balance, elegance and texture. This openness allows the vintage and three terroirs on which they farm to express themselves as wines of startling distinction. Their objective is to blaze a trail towards a future that is stimulating, exciting and beautiful—such as it must have been generations ago for the Calapooia, overlooking their “valley of flowers.” Host: Heidi Moore, Wine Enthusiast You can follow Wine Crush on Social Media: Twitter: WineCrushOR Facebook: WineCrushStoriesUncorked Instagram: Winecrushpodcast

Wine Crush - S02E07
In this episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through two stories of local winemakers. The first comes from the oldest running winery in the McMinnville AVA – and the second centers on a family vineyard with an extensive history of working the land. Guests Ariel Eberle, Winemaker, Yamhill Valley Vineyards Jody Wrigley, Co-Owner, J. Wrigley Wines Guest Biographies Ariel Eberle Ariel has spent more than a decade at Yamhill Valley Vineyards (YVV) in the McMinnville AVA of the mid-Willamette Valley. Her passion for winemaking turned heads immediately and after just a single harvest in Oregon, YVV owner Denis Burger nudged Ariel elsewhere to round out her training. She worked a pair of harvests in New Zealand at Palliser Estate in Martinborough and Chard Farm in Central Otago before returning stateside. Ariel is currently the head winemaker at YVV, which specializes in Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Chardonnay. Her vast experience fits in well with YVV, among the oldest producers in the McMinnville area having launched in 1983. She is also the founder and vintner for A Cheerful Note Cellars, a micro-batch label with a percentage of the proceeds going in support of a handful of Portland-based nonprofits. Jody Wrigley With a long love of wines, Jody met her husband John on a trip to Oregon. It was at that first meeting the two knew they were not only going to share a love of wine, but also a love for each other and building what is now known as J. Wrigley Vineyards. Jody and John have invested their heart and soul in developing this family business. As it is often said, “Planting a vineyard and making wine is a lifestyle!” With the help of their team, John and Jody continue to share their passion with wine lovers one glass at a time.

Wine Crush - S02E06
In this episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through two stories of local winemakers. The first comes from a winery that was formerly a poultry farm, but is dedicated to producing world-class wines through sustainable methods – and the second centers on a single mother and self-taught entrepreneur whose winemaking is influenced by the magical dynamic between food, wine, and friends. Guests Sean Allen, Owner & Winemaker, Pudding River Wine Cellars Cristina Gonzales, Owner & Winemaker, Gonzales Wine Company Guest Biographies Sean Allen Founder, owner and winemaker Sean Allen spent 15 years working as a mechanical engineer before pursuing his passion for winemaking. With physics and engineering degrees and years of science-based learning, viticulture and winemaking came natural to Sean in his training at the acclaimed Chemeketa Wine Studies program. Originally from Alaska, Sean is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys taking full advantage of all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer including hiking, biking and skiing. Like many winemakers, Sean is also a big foodie. In addition, Sean’s best friend and partner in crime is his chocolate lab Dakota. Cristina Gonzales In 2004, Cristina Gonzales tasted a silky, lush Malbec that forever changed the course of her life. She was volunteering in South America, and during a trip through Mendoza, Cristina encountered her first distinct food and wine experience: an Argentine steak paired with Malbec. The steak was prepared before her eyes, and the wine was unforgettable. This magical dynamic between food, wine, and friends provided the seeds of inspiration for Gonzales Wine Company. Fueled by her newfound passion for wine, Cristina got a job in a winery tasting room and then in the cellar of White Oak Vineyards in Healdsburg, California. She worked her first harvest in 2006, and went on to work in cellars throughout Australia, Tasmania, Oregon, and California. A decade of hands-on experience later, Cristina began making wines under her own label. A single mother, Latina, and self-taught entrepreneur, Cristina resides in Portland with her son, Julian, and Bean, her blue heeler.

Wine Crush - S02E05
In this episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through two stories of local winemakers. The first comes from a couple who sought to build a life of adventure in the form of winemaking – the second demonstrates how if a vineyard is treated as an entire living organism, it will best showcase its identity through the fruit it develops. Guests Grant Coulter & Renée Saint-Amour, Co-founders & Winemakers, Hundred Suns Wine Morgan Beck, Winemaker, Johan Vineyards Guest/Winery Biographies Grant Coulter & Renée Saint-Amour When Grant & Renée met over 14 years ago, they agreed on a fundamental idea: building a life together that felt like an adventure. They left California for Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where Grant first worked as assistant winemaker at Hamacher wines and then spent the bulk of 10 years as assistant winemaker and then winemaker at Beaux Freres. Those ten years were rich. Renée continued teaching high school while Grant gained intimate understanding and appreciation of the soils, climates, and personalities (both land and people) of the valley. They started a family, made good friends, drank beautiful wines, and dreamed of a life that would bring them more together than apart. In 2015, they sold their house in Portland, scraped together every penny they had, and moved to a fixer-upper in the the valley so they could build Hundred Suns. Eventually, Grant moved on from being winemaker at Beaux Freres to overseeing the vineyards and making the wines for Flaneur Wines, and Renée swapped the classroom for the cellar and running of the day-to-day business. From winemaking, to label design, website building, and even wax dipping bottles by hand, every aspect of this process has our fingerprints on it because it is just the two of us. In 2018 they bought a 4.5 acre property in the Eola-Amity hills, where an old vineyard is now their children’s backyard. So far it has been a beautiful adventure for them, and they’re just getting started. Johan Vineyards Johan Vineyards is committed to meticulous vineyard management practices, highlighted by their Biodynamic farming methods and accents of permaculture design. Biodynamic farming focuses on the entire farm as one living organism. They farm to mimic the natural microbiological ecology of the soil where vines evolved. This produces vines more resistant to disease and creates a healthy natural immune system within the vine. Johan Vineyards is broken into multiple blocks that feature 13 different varieties, with 10 clones of Pinot Noir & 7 of Chardonnay, multiple rootstocks, across varying aspects and soil types. The combination of all of these factors creates a diverse system, providing those at Johan and the winery customers they work with an array of options to achieve complexity and balance in the resulting finished wines.

Wine Crush - S02E04
In this episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through two stories of local winemakers. The first takes its name from a particular family heirloom, very special to the craftsman – the second draws inspiration from mythology and the fact that there’s always something new to learn. Guests Ian Atkins, Founder & Winemaker, Flat Brim Wines Corey Schuster, Owner & Winemaker, Jackalope Wine Cellars Guest Biographies Ian Atkins Flat Brim Wines is an Americana Winery. They have two labels in our winery so they can approach each with a specific focus. Their Americana line works with American heritage varietals such as Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot and presents them in new and interesting formats. Ian prefers a refreshing high acid low alcohol profile for his wines, which, makes them perfect for drinking on a front porch with your friends. Their Gold Flag line represents our interest in experimental winemaking. They utilize interesting methods such as carbonic and whole cluster maceration and are always on the hunt for interesting varietals and vineyards. Expect high acid 100% whole cluster Pinot Noir as well as blends of carbonic macerated Pinot Meunier, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Franc. Flat Brim only uses neutral oak and prefer longer cooler fermentations, as to not over extract. They partner with vineyards that are farmed sustainably in varying methods such as organic, biodynamic and live-certified. During harvest they prefer high acids and lower sugars when they pick their lots. In the cellar they utilize the lowest amount of sulfites possible to produce stable wines. They ultimately strive to be minimal interventionist. Corey Schuster Corey began his journey in the wine industry pouring for a small, family-owned winery near Salem, OR. His first career was all office work, so when he found myself working in a bucolic setting, the grin didn’t fade for days. When Fall hit, he joined a harvest crew. Harvest work is hard, wet, with long-hours, but ultimately satisfying work. Camaraderie is formed through the suffering, and there is always something new to learn. The first team lunch he had began his love affair with the industry and wine; a tired, wet, exhausted crew sharing a large meal and a glass, taking a break from the work to regroup and prepare for the afternoon’s tasks. This showed him that the wine industry is about community and a love of the work; something he’d not experienced before. Why Jackalope Wine Cellars? The jackalope has been a sort of totem for Corey for a long time. As a kid, his older cousin would write and send postcards from Nebraska, telling him all about the animal, swearing they were real. This formed a bond early, which gave him fond memories to treasure, as his cousin passed away when Corey was in 8th grade. Fast forward to 2004: unsatisfied with his life as a civil engineer, he decided to make a drastic change and quit his job, sell his valuables, and travel. And now, another turning point in his life: winemaker. The jackalope has become a special form of support for him and he wanted it featured prominently in his adventures.

Wine Crush - S02E03
In this episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through two stories of local winemakers. The first draws inspiration from the camaraderie of the process – the second showcases how the study of engineering can lead to winemaking. Guests Ian Burrows, Founder & Winemaker, Aerea Wines, head of Consulon Greg Van Dyke, Owner & Winemaker, Bud’s Bloom Guest Biographies Ian Burrows Ian, a native of Orpington, England, has been consumed by hospitality, food, and wine his entire adult life. He has worked as a wine director, a sommelier, a chef, and a restaurant owner, in settings as far afield as Paris, London, San Francisco, and Adelaide. Since 2007 he has worked as both a consulting and full-time sommelier in Michelin-starred restaurants, earning his Advanced Certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers in 2009. More recently he served as Wine Director for Dominique Crenn at Atelier Crenn, San Francisco; then drawn to Oregon to assume the role of Director of Sales at Antica Terra. Ian developed Aerea Vintners as a research-based project to enhance his understanding of farming and winery operations. Single vineyards are selected for their outstanding reputations, for minimal environmental impact, an assurance of varietal character and harmony. Aerea’s wines are naturally fermented, matured in seasoned French barrels of various capacity; hand-bottled and stoppered with Diam Origine 10 closures, and without filtration or fining. Each component of production at Aerea is considered a step toward a greater understanding of fine wine from the Pacific Northwest. Greg Van Dyke Growing up on a farm near Carlton, Greg developed a taste for both the outdoors and agriculture and coincidentally, was also exposed to the burgeoning wine industry erupting around him. Agricultural work entailed many skills, mechanical work among them, which led him to pursue a degree in engineering. Midway through his college career at Oregon State University, he took a year off to apprentice at Ken Wright Cellars, where he developed a passion for the art of winemaking from one of the best. After completing his degree, he pursued an engineering career, but found himself being steadily pulled back to the wine industry. In 2010, he interrupted his engineering work and traveled to New Zealand to work at Ata Rangi in Martinborough. Upon returning to Oregon, he again found work in the construction world but with more immediate intent to start his wine label. In 2012, Bud’s Bloom was formed, anticipating the 2013 vintage. This past year, Greg has relocated and is now making wine at Day Camp Winery in Dundee, OR, a community winery shared with several winemakers. He likes the new digs and and looks forward to making great wines there.

In the second episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through two distinct wine stories. The first has its roots in something all of us here at PRP love: Music. And the second truly demonstrates how with the art of wine comes family, friendships, and good times. Guests Dave Specter, Co-founder & Winemaker, Bells Up Winery Chris Helbling, Winemaker, Whiskey Hill Winery Winery Biographies Bells Up Established in 2013, Bells Up Winery in Newberg, Oregon was started by award-winning winemaker David Specter and his wife, Sara Pearson Specter. The inaugural vintages were released in Spring 2015, which coincided with the opening of the estate winery and tasting room facility—a renovated pole barn on the property. The name “Bells Up” refers to a dramatic moment in classical music where the composer instructs French horn players to lift the bells of their instruments up and project sound with maximum intensity. Dave, a French horn player who performed throughout high school and college, says the winery is his “Bells Up” moment. Whiskey Hill To go all the way back to the beginning, Gary and Carolyn Postlewait met in high school on the neighboring family farm across the road. After marrying, they continued to farm all over the valley including crops of berries, broccoli, corn, wheat, cucumbers, grass seed and more. They dedicated long hours to their crops, but more importantly to their family. 20 years ago they moved to their current location and made the property the beauty it is today. The farm is currently home to two Filbert Orchards, three blocks of Pinot Noir and a herd of red and white face Hereford’s. While Chris was sitting around and trying to keep our children from destroying the restaurant, he mused, “How hard could it be to make wine?” They quickly realized we needed something to press with. So, Gary’s father, Fred Postlewait, lent them a press he built by hand about 40 years prior. The same press is still on display in their Tasting Room today.

Wine Crush - S02E01
Check out Season 2 of our Wine Crush Podcast! In the first episode, host Heidi Moore will guide us through two diverse wine stories. The first centers on a veteran-owned and operated winery whose mission is to serve the veteran community through charitable contribution; and the second showcases and urban winery, located in SE Portland, whose philosophy is informed by the old-century winemakers of Europe… and Jazz! Guests Ben Martin, Co-founder & Winemaker, Dauntless Wine Co. Jason Gersing, Founder & Winemaker, Gersing Cellars Guest Biographies Ben Martin Ben served as an Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV) crewman with the 7th Marine regiment out of 29 Palms, CA. In 2003 Ben participated in the invasion of Iraq with 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines. In 2004 and 2005 Ben deployed with the 31st MEU out of Okinawa, Japan. After his enlistment, Ben began college and studied web design and branding at Portland Community College, Pacific University, and the Art Institute of Portland. In between classes he found a passion for small business, which propelled him into agency work and brand management. In 2012 Ben helped launch a pilot non-profit aimed at rehabilitating veterans through permaculture. This program showed promise that agriculture can be an alternative treatment for Veterans suffering from PTSD and TBI. Looking for inspiration he found that the French Foreign Legion houses over 100 aging Legionaries on a vineyard chateau where they grow grapes, make wine, and find peace. Ben wondered – “Why not here?” It was not until February 2014 that the idea of veteran viticulture re-emerged during a Walla-Walla wine trip with co-founders Ryan Mills and Paul Warmbier. Excited about the possibilities, the three launched Dauntless Wine Company that December. Ben is now scheduled to graduate from the Chemeketa Wine Studies program with an AS in winemaking and vineyard management. On May 18th, 2017 Ben was awarded the Wine Studies “Emerging Leader” award for his efforts launching Dauntless Wine Company while attending the program. Jason Gersing Jason has two great passions: jazz and wine. Not long after Jason picked up the saxophone in 6th grade was he transcribing “Cannonball” Adderley and Sonny Stitt, and he continued to study throughout high school and college. Jason then moved to New York to study and play with some of the best jazz musicians in the world. Of course, musicians need a day job to support their jazz habit. One such job was working harvest at Bedell Cellars on Long Island. Jason had been bitten by the wine bug while studying in Italy, but experiencing crush deepened his fascination with the winemaking process. Jason spent the next three years exploring the wine regions of France and Italy and studied Enology and Viticulture at Montpellier Supagro in the south of France. Missing the U.S. but wanting a new American experience, Jason moved to Portland, Oregon. After taking Business courses at Portland State University and Enology and Viticulture courses at Chemeketa Community College, Jason joined Argyle Winery where he was in charge of production planning and inventory management, though he participated in almost every facet of the operation. At Argyle, Jason gained not only a unique education in sparkling wine production but also a broad overview of a complex and growing wine company. When not in the cellar or the vineyard, “Goose” can probably be found either listening to live jazz or playing saxophone with one of several Portland-based groups.

Wine Crush - S01E08
In the season one finale, we’ll hear two new influential wine stories. The first from a vineyard who’s name comes from a natural phenomenon specific to their estate; and the second features a winery who’s locations and geology highly influence their wine-making style. Guests Sofia Torres-McKay, Winemaker & Proprietor, Cramoisi Vineyard Chris Barnes, Winemaker & Proprietor, Chris James Cellars Guest Biographies Sofia Torres-McKay Sofia and her husband kept their daily jobs in the IT industry in order to invest in their vineyard. In 2015 Sofia decided to leave the IT Industry environment and focused 100% in the wine family business. They are excited yet humbled to be in the Dundee Hills, the Mecca of the Pinot Noir. Living few steps from Pinot Noir pioneers such as Jim Maresh, Vivian Weber, and next door neighbor Dick Erath. Their vineyard is their home and they farm without the use of pesticides and herbicides while leveraging ancient practices to avoid contaminating the soil, the environment, farm workers, guests and their children. In the years when the vines were developing from small tender shoots to sturdy fruit producing vines, they searched the valley high and low for a winemaker to coax the essence of this special place into rich yet elegant wines. They have found that raising vines is a lot like raising their two boys. They need lots of love and if you spend quality time with them, give them the best you have to offer, they grow up strong and healthy, showing their full potential in life. Chris Barnes Chris is an engineer who has worked in the technology sector for over 15 years. As an engineer, he has always had an intense desire to make the things that he is interested in. This desire motivated forays into cooking, heavy equipment, and engine building; but farming and wine making has always held a special place in his heart. Both his grandparents and great-grandparents owned vineyards on the east coast. His grandparent’s farm was located in Vineland, New Jersey where they farmed the Noah grape. The crop was used for sparkling white wine production. When Chris was a child he would spend time working on the farm picking berries and helping out on the farm (or so he thinks).

Wine Crush - S01E07
Check out our newest addition to the PRP Podcast Co-op, Wine Crush! In the seventh episode, we’ll hear two new and fascinating wine stories. The first from a winery who honors their family heritage; and the second will feature another family winery located in the Chehalem (sha-hay-lem) Mountains of Oregon. Guests Dave Coelho, Proprietor & Winemaker, Coelho Winery Bryan Laing, Winemaker, Hazelfern Cellars Guest Biographies Dave Coelho Dave and Deolinda Coelho are the owners and day-to-day operators of Coelho Winery. Their story starts in the San Joaquin Valley in California, where as a young couple they farmed approximately 800 acres of tomatoes, sugar beets, corn, and alfalfa. Looking for a change and a good place to educate their very young children, while visiting Oregon, they fell in love with the rolling hills of the lush Willamette Valley. In 1991, they packed up their young family and moved to Amity where they transformed 40 acres 3 miles south of Amity into the renowned Coelho Estate Vineyard. Bryan Laing Bryan’s love of wine is rooted in his Oregon blood. “I grew up in a family who appreciated great wine. I was taught that wine is something special yet something that is a staple of everyday life – a condiment with any meal… something to talk about over family dinners, something to share with good people and great friends, and something to collect and age with memories. It’s an inclusive part of everyday life.” In 2006, Bryan’s love for wine on the dinner table grew into a love for winemaking with his family. “We sourced amazing fruit from Trudy and Keith at Kramer Vineyards, and five of us set out to make our first Pinot Noir. It’s funny to look back now and realize all of the things we didn’t know then about making wine.” What started with 5 gallons of Pinot Noir and a Portland basement has grown to over 500 cases of wine and a family wine farm in Newberg, OR. “I love how much I learn every year and with every new harvest. I am a constant student and sponge for information. I read about wine, talk to other winemakers, drink other people’s wines and try to understand how that winemaker got there, watch YouTube videos that other winemakers put out, and soak up everything I can get. My understanding of winemaking changes daily, and I literally can’t get enough of it.” Host: Heidi Moore, Wine Enthusiast You can follow Wine Crush on Social Media: Twitter: WineCrushOR Facebook: WineCrushStoriesUncorked Instagram: Winecrushpodcast

Wine Crush - S01E06
In the sixth episode, we are venturing out of the valley and hitting a new area. The first story to be uncorked comes a proprietor of an urban winery; and the second will feature another family winery, but located between Oregon City and Canby. Guests Rodger Marks, Proprietor & Winemaker, RAM Cellars Darin Ingram, Winemaker, King's Raven Winery Guest Biographies Rodger Marks Rodger's interest in wine turned into a love of wine which turned into an intense curiosity about everything that goes into the production of premium wines. After the ‘aha’ moment at a barrel tasting at Washington State’s Kiona Winery many years ago, he took up studies through Washington State University’s extension campus in Prosser, WA on both viticulture and enology, the science of wine winemaking. Volunteer time at Davenlore Winery (Prosser, WA) through the Wazzu programs spread out over several years, as well as a short stint at Montinore (Forest Grove, OR) on weekends during the 2012 harvest season were precursors to a harvest internship at Enso Winery in 2013 in Portland, Oregon that turned into a position as cellar master and assistant winemaker, a position he still holds today. Darin Ingram Since 1942 the Ingram family has farmed the same piece of land. Nestled between the Cascade Foothills and the Willamette Valley lies the Mt. Hood Territory. Marvin Ingram moved his family to this slice of heaven to reconnect with the land. But he also did so to heed the advice of his doctor who advised him to escape the atmosphere surrounding the paper mill he worked at next to the mighty Willamette Falls. Grandpa Marvin purchased the 40 acres in 1941 for a little less than $2000. Marvin was born in Butteville, OR which you can see from the tasting room looking to the West. Today the 2nd, 3rd and 4th generations of Marvin Ingram’s family (which include Darin) focus on Hand Crafting Vintage, Estate Grown Wines on the Estate Vineyard, Winery and Amphitheater.

In the fourth episode, we'll uncork two insightful wine stories. The first from one-third of a band of brothers who own a small family-owned and operated winery, also located in the Carlton/Yamhill area mentioned in previous episodes. In the second story, we'll meet an ambitious head winemaker undertaking the goal of starting his own label. Guests Sean Davis, Winemaker, Marshall Davis Wines Jesus Guillen, Winemaker, Guillen Family Wines Guest Biographies Sean Davis Founded in 2011 by brothers Sean Davis, Ryan Marshall, and Matt Marshall (Pictured on the label). Marshall Davis creates small batch vineyard specific wines. They make Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from their estate vineyard located in The Yamhill-Carlton AVA of the Willamette Valley. They also craft full bodied wines such as our Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon with fruit originating from some of the most prestigious vineyards in the Walla Walla AVA. Stylistically they keep their wines focused and "varietally correct". Winemaker Sean Davis believes in minimal manipulation, letting each vineyard express itself, with more attention paid to textures and tannin management. Jesus Guillen With the idea of learning a little bit of English, Jesús Guillén arrived in Oregon in 2002 with a degree in Computer Systems Engineering from Universidad Autonoma de Chihuahua in hand. Having a passing interest in wine, he began to explore, visiting vineyards and tasting rooms. Sampling many wines helped develop his palate and increased his appreciation for finer examples. After completing two terms of study in English, Jesus had to decide if he would like to stay in the United States with his father and family or return to Mexico. Guillén‘s wine career began as a vineyard worker for Patricia Green Cellars and later for White Rose Estate, alongside his father. The owner of White Rose Estate saw his interest in wine, and offered him a job in the cellar. There he met consulting winemaker Mark Vlossak, who became one of his mentors. By 2004, Jesus had become he cellar master for White Rose. In 2006, an opportunity arose for him to make a wine under his own label. Jesus uses old world minimal manipulation techniques to make his wines, including the use of whole cluster fermentation with indigenous yeasts and also sur-lie aging. His is a detail-oriented approach that focuses on making wine that inspires an evocative experience, by achieving a high level of complexity and harmony.
