Interview with Cheryl Francis of A to Z Wineworks and Rex Hill Winery

Today, we welcome Cheryl Francis of A to Z Wineworks and Rex Hill Winery to our studio. Cheryl has a longtime interest in biodynamics and the natural processes of winemaking. She began her career in Oregon's Willamette Valley, where she planted her first vineyard in the late 1990s.

In 2002, A to Z Wineworks was born, a partnership between Cheryl, her husband, Sam Tannahill, and wine industry veterans Deb and Bill Hatcher. From their first vintage, A to Z has consistently released impressive wines, receiving multiple honors for their Pinot Noirs, from both Food & Wine Magazine and Wine Spectator. Accolades like "Best Pinot Noir in the U.S." and "Best Pinot Noir Under $20" have made Cheryl's wines bestsellers – and for good reason.
