Il n’y a pas de substitut pour les empreintes dans le vignoble.
There are no substitutes for footprints in the vineyard.
This simple phrase was shared with me during the time I spent in France and still holds a lot of weight to this day.
It means that you just have to get out there and walk the land. To be in the vineyard each day allows us to keep a watchful eye and nurture our vines from soul to soil.
Having grown up in Rogue Valley, Oregon, I now have the great honor to continue my family’s love of winemaking in Fredericksburg, just a stone’s throw away from where they started in Montgomery, Texas.
Together, my family and the Signors have nurtured the land and friendship over generations.
And as winemaker, it is my pleasure to carry these values on.
Eric Weisinger, Winemaker
Eric Weisinger grew up in the Rogue Valley wine business. He helped plant his first vines in 1978 and took over over winemaking from his father, and longtime Signor family friend, John in 1998. Wanting to expand his experience and winemaking perspective, from 2007 to 2015 Eric split his time between Oregon and the Marlborough region of New Zealand, where his winemaking focus was on Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Today, Eric lives year round in Oregon. He loves his job as Winemaker, because he says, “No two days are the same and there is always more to learn about wine.”
