Vineyard Manager

Gerry Sanchez
Nearly 365 days a year for over 2 decades Gerry has tended to the vines at Cooper Mountain. In a relatively new wine growing region Gerry is a veteran in the Willamette Valley. Gerry came to Cooper Mountain in 1985 and has seen the rain, the snow, the wind and the sun. Not only do he and his team take exceptional care of the vineyards but he keeps the place in working order. Gerry and his team are responsible for implementing Dr. Gross’s organic and biodynamic visions in the vineyard and are ahead of the curve in organic/biodynamic viticulture. Managing over 100 acres is no small task but Gerry keeps a very knowledgeable and dedicated team that takes great pride in a job well done and the success of the winery.
