Abstract

This interview is with Bill Sweat and Donna Morris, owners of Winderlea Vineyard and Winery. In this interview, the couple discusses how wine was a big part of their story, especially the food aspect as wine is a strong part of that experience as well. They describe how they ended up living in Oregon and owning a winery as “serendipity” as they put themselves in the hands of the people they were learning from and continued to grow. They talk about the Oregon wine industry and how collaborative and gracious people were in helping them out.

This interview was conducted by Rich Schmidt on July 18th, 2018 at Winderlea Vineryard and Winery.
