David Rizzo is our winemaker.
David’s obsession with winemaking began on a trip to Napa Valley, back when tasting rooms had only one person pouring the wine, and they so happened to be the winemakers themselves. Enchanted by the confidence and passion for the process David asked all the questions he could, and returned to Oregon thinking “Well, I could do that.” It took longer than he thought to acquire grapes from nearby farmers, but persistence gave him his first vintage only a few years later. Sharing it with his friends, his humble wine that was made in his garage had gained a following. Winning competitions for amateur winemakers David had a talent in winemaking that came naturally. Eventually this talent led him to purchase the very estate that Rizzo Winery sits on still. His love for the purity of the grapes, and trusting Mother Nature herself, gives us the single-vineyard single-varietal wines Rizzo Winery is known for today.
