Nancy M. Otton
Nancy M. OttonWinemaker - Owner
After putting away her love for flying, Nancy became a self-made winemaker. Having no prior wine making experience, Nancy jumped into the business with great passion and energy, and set off learning how to create wine using a quarter-acre of Merlot on the family estate. Utilizing a learn-by-doing methodology with the support of her husband Terry and two children Culham and Alexandra, she pursued a dream. In time, Nancy engaged a wine consultant to help her enhance her already award winning wines. When Nancy is not in the Winery or Vineyards you will find her nurturing her many animals.
