Already wine enthusiasts, they developed a tremendous appreciation for Oregon Pinot Noir. On one of these early trips they met Ken and Erica and became friends, never realizing what lay ahead. After years of frequent trips to Oregon to explore Wine Country and participate in events like the International Pinot Noir Celebration, Sue and Andy decided to move to Oregon. They became part time Oregonians in 2008 and then full time residents in 2011.Sue, an Attorney, has developed a practice focused on the commercial and cash flow needs of wineries.
