“Andreas Wetzel, Owner, Winemaker, Vineyard manager, floor sweeper and mess cleaner upper is the fourth generation of Wetzel’s to produce wine. Having mostly experiential training and a passion for “food friendly” wines his goal is to bring to market approachable and irresistible values. At the end of the day my job is to make people a little bit happier and a little more satisfied with life by having a nice glass of wine for food, family and friends. Prost!”

David LaBonte III, Tasting Room Guru
“David Roland La Bonte III was born to his Executive Chef father David R. La Bonte Jr. and Project Manager Mother Janet La Bonte under a full moon on a dark and stormy night in August. The stars aligned to bring forth the greatest mind to come to the world of wine. Come to the vineyard and bask in his knowledge and glory as he preaches from on mountain high(or Butler hill). He also has his Culinary Art and Hospitality Management degrees from Lane Community College in Eugene, OR and his first level with the Court of Master Sommelier. He’s pretty cool.”
