This interview is with Nate Wall of Troon Wines. In this interview, Nate speaks about discovering an interest in microbes and an interest in wine, but taking a while to find the connection between the two. He talks about getting his start working in the Virginia wine industry before coming to Oregon, and the various places he worked.

Once in Oregon, he takes us through the path to coming to Troon, from finding a passion for biodynamic farming to finding Troon just as it was about to undertake a massive biodynamic project. He also talks about what comes next for him and for the brand.

This interview was conducted by Rich Schmidt at Troon Wines tasting room in McMinnville on April 5, 2023.


Some oral history interviews are conducted on site and may contain background noise from nature, winery, or tasting room operations.
