Ehren was honored for creating the #1 Wine of the Year by Wine Enthusiast.

Ehren has followed a maze of seemingly haphazard adventures from his roots in Pennsylvania to his stint as a wine store stock boy in Washington DC, to the slopes and fine restaurants of Aspen, to the vineyards of France’s Rhône Valley, only to find his home and calling in St Helena, California. Throughout the many segments of his travel and work, he met several key people who helped shaped his career and focus – and especially helped provide experiences that would feed his thirst for crafting fine wines that have garnered much recognition throughout the industry. His journey has given him the all encompassing skills of Viticulturist, Winemaker and Winery GM, a enviable trifecta of accomplishment. His resumé includes founding Failla Wines, winemaking for Turley Wine cellars, and time at Marcassin, Joseph Phelps Vineyards and Les Ruchets Wines. His winemaking, just like his wines, keep getting better with time.

 

 

 


Awarded US Winemaker of the Year in 2008 by the San Francisco Chronicle.

 

For 32 Winds, Ehren works with Ed to select the best vineyards for the wines we want to create. He oversees the vineyard development throughout the growing season, and determines pruning, and picking times utilizing all his experience and “grape intuition”. After the crush, the attention to detail continues as wines are delicately cared for. The resultant wines shine with all the intensity, color, and flavor that one would expect from one of his creations.
