Ehren Jordan's career in winemaking began when he fortuitously took a part-time position as a stock boy at Bell's Wine Shop while attending college in Washington, D.C. After graduation and a short stint selling wine for a large distributor in Denver, 

Michael applies traditional and natural winemaking techniques, including small-lot fermentation, the use of indigenous yeasts, and little-to-no fining or filtration. To moderate oak influence, the winery's barrel program incorporates large-format oak vessels including 900-gallon founders and 120-gallon punching, as well as older, traditional French barrels.
