At a bar in San Francisco in 1998, Erica Orr met winemaker Aaron Pott who convinced her that winemaking was the coolest job in the world. She took a vacation from her lab tech job at UCSF to work harvest with Cathy Corison while applying to the master’s program at Davis. Erica honed her craft working at some of the best wineries in the world: Rudd Estate, Cain Vineyard, Domaine Dujac and Yering Station. In 2005, she moved to Washington state and started an independent lab and winemaking consulting business in Woodinville, where she helped wineries including Baer, Mark Ryan, Guardian, Sparkman and others rack up 90+ point scores and multiple Spectator Top 100 wines. In 2013, Erica decided the time had come to create a wine brand of her own focusing on old vine chenin blanc, grenache and a red blend benefiting health care for vineyard workers.
