Founder Focus

February 2024

This February we focused on two founders in the Willamette Valley. From the pioneering spirit that drove Bob & Barbara Gross of Cooper Mountain Vineyards from New York to the west coast to the passion of John Grochau growing from a fine dining foundation to cultivating a winemaking community. What drives these people? And more importantly, what does wine made by such driven individuals taste like? This month we welcome a new winery and a new grape variety to the Cellar 503 experience.
