Ruth (Evan) Lewandowski

Because Evan's dad was in the Air Force, he was used to traveling quite a bit. And if you weren't born in a classic winemaking area, traveling will almost certainly be a part of any wine education you might want to pursue. Evan's wine journey began when he went to College in Utah. He fell in love with the place - the classic skiing story if you will - but also, tasting a certain wine really got him wine-bug-bitten. And for some odd reason, he got into his head that Utah would be a perfect place to make wine from high-altitude vines.
