John Haw’s experience started with Warner Vineyards and Leelanau Cellars in Michigan back in 1972. As his career blossomed he ventured to Oregon where his family was from, landing him at Shafer Vineyars in Forest Grove for his first introduction to Oregon wines. He continued on to Sokol Blosser for 11 years, which led him to Pedroncelli in Dry Creek California and finally he found his way to the Columbia Gorge, first working for Maryhill and then finding his home with Jacob Williams. He believes the Columbia Gorge has the BEST wine growing region in the nation.
John carefully hand-selects each vineyard and allows the vineyards to dictate what the style will be. Aging his wines for up to 36 months, John’s experience and dedication continues to produce premium award-winning wines year after year.
