Eric joined Tertulia Cellars in 2014.  A confirmed "big red" fan, he loves presenting our bold and powerful wines in the Pinot Noir heartland of Oregon's Willamette Valley.

Prior to entering the wine industry, Eric was often found on the other side of the counter in tasting rooms throughout California, Oregon, and Washington, usually accompanied by his wine judge father.

Eric labored 12-hour shifts as a "cellar rat" during the 2015 harvest, learning about wine making from the bottom up. Besides managing our Dundee Tasting Room, Eric enjoys event planning and organizing Club Crawls. He also maintains Tertulia's website, social media, and wine club, as well as handling Tertulia's distribution in Oregon. In his spare time Eric enjoys gardening, recording podcasts, contemplating overly-ambitious home improvement projects, and he's an aspiring novelist with rough drafts for several detective novels set in the wine industry.
