ALWAYS B WISE…
I grew up on a farm in Washington state. That’s where I learned about growing fruit. I loved it, but Dad told me there was no money in farming and that I should consider becoming a chemical engineer. So I did. And then I started an oil company and traveled the globe. The world’s greatest restaurants and wineries became my classroom for learning about the most interesting and alluring fruit of all – the wine grape. The more I learned the more certain I became that I needed my own vineyards. And so the search began. I visited all the greatest wine growing regions, here and abroad, and could have bought land anywhere. But it
was this mountainside in Sonoma that captured my heart. It’s here, in these vineyards that I can engage in the process, gain knowledge and pursue perfection. For me, learning what it takes to make great wine, is the path to true wisdom.
