Andrew and Annedria Beckham are the owners of Beckham Estate Vineyard in Sherwood, Oregon, where Andrew is the winemaker. Unique to Beckham Estate Vineyard, Andrew Beckham blends his two passions, wine and art, by making his own amphorae. Amphorae are terra cotta vessels used to store wine while it ages, an ancient tradition of winemaking thought to originate in the Republic of Georgia.
In this interview, the Beckhams discuss their experiences together in the wine industry. Specifically, they address changes seen in the industry in the last 10 years, as well as the support they have found in relationships with established winemakers. Annedria insightfully notes that “the rising tide floats all boats” in reference to the growing industry and the advantages they see when winemakers help one another.
