The Ayres philosophy: "We believe our wine has a soul. We believe our wine gives voice to the soil. We believe that our wine guides us as much as we guide our wine. It’s about reciprocity. It’s a relationship that begins in the vineyard, from the first sign of bud break to the last cluster harvested."
Winemaker Brad McLeroy arrived in Oregon fresh from the retail scene, having just sold his highly successful wine & spirits store. In Portland he worked for a small wholesale operation which specialized in boutique European wines. After a year of selling at the wholesale level, Brad was given the opportunity to work as the Cellarmaster at the famed Domaine Drouhin in Oregon. That is where Brad honed his winemaking skills, under the direct instruction of the Drouhin family. In May 2005, he and family founded Ayres Vineyard & Winery. His commute? A few steps out his back door.
