William Henry's Story
"Early in life, I developed a taste for the passions of cooking and all things created out of hard work. That interest in cooking was instrumental in developing my palate for wine tasting and understanding that food and all things beverage go together.
I grew up in Oregon and opened my first restaurant there so I was perfectly placed to learn about the wine business that surrounded me. After working with some great chefs and winemakers around the Pacific Northwest it was time to branch out on my own.
Whether I was picking the wines for fancy restaurants like Danube, Esca and BLT Fish, or raising pigs for the Oregon state fair, I always knew that hard work and diligence are the path to success. You have to be passionate to create memorable food and wine
After working eight harvests in Oregon, France, Germany and now California I’m ready to create something special on my own. Wines that bring in elements from each of these great regions!"
