Gary Matson - Chief Vintner
"Wine made with Character "
Gone But Never Forgotten.
Each remembered with their own unique wine.
Chief Vintner Gary Matson, has been working on something unique and special for the people of Butler County, PA and beyond.
This passion started out as a hobby for Gary over 20 years ago. As he refined his skills and created even more interesting wines, his hobby became a full time job. Gary found that his hobby was able to provide him a living in 2005 and this is when he took the plunge and decided to devote his efforts full time by opening his own winery. The rest is a story of growing success and future development and expansion. Wine is often described as a living beverage.
