As many of you may have heard, Russ Raney passed away this weekend. We are saddened by his loss. After stepping away from winemaking as the original owner and winemaker of Evesham Wood and one of the founders of the Deep Roots Coalition, Russ shared his love of Corbieres wines through his local import business. The Willamette Valley lost a great figure in its winemaking history. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and all those who were touched by his passion and enthusiasm, whether directly or indirectly, in Oregon or abroad.
