Gary Matson - Chief Vintner
"Wine made with Character "
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.
