This interview is with Madeleine Rowan-Davis of Atlas Vineyard Management. In this interview, Madeleine speaks about her background in science and starting to work in wine almost on a whim. Her work in hospitality and sales at Bonny Doon Vineyard allowed her to develop a passion and curiosity and led her to study at UC Davis.

After getting into vineyard management and viticulture, Madeleine talks about the various positions she held before coming to Atlas, including customer expectations and understanding different vineyards. She also talks about what brought her back to Oregon and how it has gone so far.

This interview was conducted by Rich Schmidt at Abbott Claim Vineyard in Carlton on August 22, 2023.
