Happy Birthday - Jean-Michel!

Today, we celebrate Del Rio winemaker, Jean-Michel’s birthday. This last birthday year has been filled with great new adventures for Jean-Michel and his wife Liza. Last fall they welcomed a new addition to their family with sweet baby Eloise. This year marks Jean-Michel’s third crush at Del Rio. He, like Eloise, has been a great addition to the Del Rio family. Jean-Michel came to Del Rio with a long history of wine making. Jean-Michel has been making wine since early childhood at his family's 50-acre vineyard and winery in France. He is well traveled and has produced wines from many grapes varietals and from various climates throughout the world. Before finding a home in Oregon, Jean-Michel traveled the world, working in Hungary, Australia, and South Africa. His French wine making style has blended well with Del Rio grapes, making each vintage unique and delicious.

Ice cream cones in one hand and a glass of wine in the other, we toast to another year of success and joy. Happy Birthday!
