Dan Warnshuis from Utopia started in wine by converting a laundry room into a wine cellar to opening a wine shop in Napa. But, his dream and vision didn’t stop there. He wanted his vineyard, and Oregon was the perfect place to plant his roots. So, after years of driving from Napa to Oregon every other weekend, his dream became a reality. Dan has been farming Utopia Vineyard in the Ribbon Ridge AVA for 20 years. Please enjoy this conversation as we dive into the hard work of being a winemaker, the research to overcome the Oregon wildfires of 2020, how the Oregon Wine Community always steps up when others need help, and so much more!
