We are excited to announce that Keith Tyers has taken on the role of winemaker at Closson Chase. Keith is already well known to many of our fans having served the winery in numerous roles.
Wine is part of life, it reminds us of the past as we enjoy the present and think about the future.
From the age of 19, wine and food have been part of my life. My first career was in restaurants as a sommelier. Next I was the Assistant Winemaker and Vineyard Manager at Closson Chase, and later I moved into the position of Retail Manager and Sales.
I fell in love with Pinot Noir after I had the opportunity to try a 1994 Romaine St Vivant DRC. At first it was nice, but 30 seconds later it was and still is unforgettable. It set the standard by which all other pinots would be measured.
My goal is to produce and create wines from where the grapes are grown. I am open to new ideas, new ways of doing things, and ultimately putting the summer in a glass for other wine lovers to enjoy. I hope others take as much pleasure in drinking our wines as we have in making them.
