Blending the business and creative sides of winemaking led Greg Ralston to a partnership with esteemed Oregon winemaker Isabelle Meunier, resulting in the creation of Lavinea Winery, makers of single vineyard wines. Greg spent more than 25 years in management positions with wine producers from Italy, Burgundy, and the Napa Valley among others. As president and CEO of Evening Land Vineyards in 2012, Greg oversaw related wineries in California, Burgundy, and Oregon. It was during this period, working with Isabelle, they produced some of Oregon’s most highly acclaimed Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. Greg is passionate about producing wines that are the highest expression and purest voice of site-specific terroir – wines that are enhancing the Willamette Valley’s stature in the world of fine wine.
