OUR PRODUCERS: Golden Cluster

I am a 3rd generation American, who was raised in the fiercely independent state of New Hampshire. Growing up on a self-sustaining farm taught me the value of hard work, community, the taste of seasons, and an appreciation for the colonial history that was around me. These lessons and experiences have culminated into my wine project called Golden Cluster here in Oregon.

Back in the late 90’s when I was just getting into Oregon wine, I did a bunch of research on wineries that were located in the same county where I was living. One of the first ones that came to my attention was David Hill Winery. I remember driving up there and thinking I was lost, because I had found myself driving up an old dirt road. I thought for sure I must have missed a turn somewhere.

I’m very interested in Biodynamics, I have read all of the books, attended many seminars, tasted many great wines, talked with many incredible growers, so I feel that I have a great knowledge base to start with. Having lived on a self-sustaining farm, many of these ideas are not new to me.

I’m not a university trained winemaker. I have trouble even calling myself a winemaker. I wish there was another word for it. Basically, I let the vintage dictate to me what wine is going to be possible.
