A to Z Wineworks' partnership blends unique skills. Bill Hatcher brought an extensive background in strategy and finance to the Oregon wine industry and Domaine Drouhin Oregon, which he managed for 13 years before co-founding A to Z. Debra Hatcher spearheads marketing, promotion and design. Sam Tannahill and Cheryl Francis, winemakers respectively for Archery Summit and Chehalem for 8 years, bring surpassing creativity and technical expertise resulting in the same quality at 120,000 cases as with the inaugural 2,500 that earned us Food and & Wine Magazine's award for the best American Pinot Noir under $20.
Founded in 2002, the company is Oregon's fastest growing winery. The business model is simple to produce and market Oregon's best wine values by concentrating on our core competencies of acquisition, blending and marketing.
Intense aromatics of lime blossom, nectarine, tangerine, melon, wet stone and guava build into more aromatics of nutmeg, bing cherries and kiwi. The palate in concentrated, ripe and succulent with wonderful lush fruit and mineral tones. The lasting impression of the wine is great purity and intensity balanced by wonderful juicineess and succulence.
