Join us for the Season 2 finale of Wine Crush!
In this episode, we center on a husband and wife who just fell in love with the people, culture, and the stories of all things wine. In addition, we have a second story which comes from a winemaker taking over some big shoes, but entering the position with quite the pedigree.
Ryan & Kelly Robinson
Ryan & Kelly met in 2012 and have been partners in life ever since. They decided to take on this venture as most do, drinking wine in their kitchen, after a long day of work. Kelly had been in the corporate world since graduating from college in 2009, and wanted to take her learned sales and business relations experience to a new level.
Ryan & Kelly had frequented Oregon wine country and Napa Valley, only to fall in love with the people, the culture, the stories and all things wine. They knew they had to be a part of that community and here they are!
Their journey would not be complete without their dog Gary. He’s a huge part of their life and is Lev Livet’s official wine dog. Because what’s a winery without one?
Tres is a native Oregonian and Newport High School graduate who spent 10 years in the technology industry before turning his attention to wine. He studied enology at Oregon State University before accepting a position in 2011 to work under the tutelage of Anthony King, who was the head winemaker at Lemelson Vineyards in Carlton at the time. He then spent four years at Brittan Vineyards, where he had the opportunity to help make their wines as well as those of several other Willamette Valley wineries, including Winderlea Vineyards and Youngberg Hill.
