A man travels the world over in search of what he needs,
and returns home to find it. — George Moore
Born and raised in Texas, John Weisinger moved to Oregon in 1979 to pursue a dream of making wine and for 10 years he did just that. In 1997 John's son, Eric took over as winemaker. As a child and a young man, Eric did everything from working in the vineyard to assisting with his father's winemaking, supplementing his hands-on experience with courses in wine chemistry at University of California at Davis. John focused his attention to the administrative side of the winery as the business grew.
In 2006 Eric left the winery to expand his horizons in the industry working in New Zealand, Australia and Napa, California. Upon his return to the Rogue Valley, Eric began working as a winemaking consultant and started a local vineyard management business. John has since retired and lives part-time in Texas with his wife, Janie, while Eric runs the family business.
