This interview is an oral history conducted by Linfield College archivist Rachael Cristine Woody and Whitman College archivist Melissa Salrin with Doug Roskelley of Tero Estates. The interview took place on July 18, 2014 and included topics such as how Roskelley became a winemaker, the Walla Walla climate as it relates to agriculture, and the relationship Tero Estates has with the older wineries in the area.

Roskelley discusses the dynamic of being a newer winery and his relationship to the more established winemakers in the area. He also covers the Walla Walla Valley’s unique climate and how well suited it is not just for grape growing but for agriculture in general.
