After growing up on a farm in the Midwest, Steve Schepman was doing the responsible thing working in the financial services industry and in 2013 an opportunity came along to get into the wine business. Excited to create wines he would love and buy, this was the opportunity that blended his skills and interests in life while enabling him to create something he loves.  Traversing the globe, sourcing grapes from the world’s best vineyards, then returning to Napa to blend & create award winning wines has truly been a dream come true.



Eric Dorton’s story began in West Texas where he studied winemaking & helped modernize the Texas wine industry. After leaving his roots, he traveled to Australia’s Barossa Valley to be part of the illustrious Penfold’s red winemaking team. After his visa expired, he returned to Texas to help develop the Domaines & Estates division of Glazer's. There he met Martin Sinkoff, a world-renowned Bordeaux buyer & négociant. Working with Martin sparked his ambition to create brands of world class flavor.
