It begins as an opportunity Our Story
Dick Shaw began his career in the vineyard world in 1981. He along with several co-investors met with the father of Washington viticulture, Dr. Walter Clore, who advised them on their first planting of a 100-acre plot on the Wahluke Slope. Dr. Clore counseled them on the ideal location and varietals to plant. It was a rough start, and when it came time to invest more capital in the venture, Dick was the sole investor to do so.
