Born and raised amongst the uncanny bounty of the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, I found myself with little choice but to explore and create with what what life here provides.

Although I am a cook by heart and trade, a series of events in 2008 led me, almost by accident, to switch to crafting wines. From the beginning, my wines have been driven by locale, climate, and cuisine, while also rooted in the traditions of the historic homeland of my profession, the Rhone Valley.

I hope the wines of Fausse Piste find your table, joined by friends, family, and the bounty of the land wherever you may be.
