 Fred Gunton's Bio

Fred's interest in wine sprung to life while pursuing a communications degree in San Francisco . A traditional  university classroom and textbook wine education quickly lead to wine country opportunities. Fred's extensive knowledge and appreciation for wine also comes from a long association with the Oregon wine industry.

"You can learn more by getting your hands dirty than from reading it out of a book."
