Meet our Wine Maker! Michael has been passionate about winemaking for many years. It is deeply rooted within his family history. Michael’s family emigrated from Austria and started a winery in Texas in the late thirties. He began his journey in his early twenties working for a winery in west Texas. Michael worked in Germany on the Rhine River for 2 years and upon his return, he continued working for several wineries for the next twenty five years. He has garnished many awards in his career from bronze to double gold and best of show. Since moving to Pennsylvania, he has produced over 37 award winning wines over the past 3 years. His experience from producing dry region style wines in Texas to now producing cool region style wines in the north east has enabled him to obtain a balance of many wine styles. He has produced a full spectrum of wine varieties both red and white, ranging from full complex oak aged to very balanced and fruit forward.
