Steve and Christy Simmons journeyed to Oregon from Alaska; Christy being a lifelong Alaskan and Steve having spent nearly 30 years in the “land of the midnight sun.”
Steve’s dream to return to the outdoor life of farming and their love of wine sent them on a quest to find the right location to unite these two desires. Friends from Anchorage had already found a perfect site in southern Oregon to develop a vineyard. A visit with them and the chance availability of acreage nearby was enough to begin the adventure.
And what an adventure it has been! Dirt under the fingernails, skunks on the porch and some truly sincere neighbors has been their experience thus far — not to mention the acquaintance of a wonderful winemaker and the production of some wonderfully delicious wines.
