30 winemakers under 40 to watch (part two)

In the second of a three-part series, we round up 10 winemakers to watch under 40 who are shaping the future of the industry.

11. Ryan Harms (37)

Ryan Harms caused a storm in a wine glass last November when he released his Oregon-grown Underwood Pinot Noir in a 12-ounce can to try and encourage the “beerification” of wine among consumers. “We wanted to launch a product that embodied our philosophy of making great craft wine minus the fuss. These wines are more about immediacy and the can is an extension of that thinking,” says Harms.

He launched the Union Wine Company in 2005 after clocking up several years experience at wineries in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, including six years as winemaker at Hawks View Cellars. He is adamant to prove that Oregon wine need not always be expensive and has made it his mission to craft quality Oregon Pinot at an affordable price point.

    One of the most arrogant winemakers around! Boring High and mighty attitude from someone born into it rather than working for it!
