Lisa Burner and her husband, Mike moved from Wisconsin to Oregon in 1991 and settled in the Chehalem Valley outside of Newberg in 1999 where they continue to live with their son, Sam. Fishery scientists by trade, the Burners became inspired by the beautiful settings and high quality wines of the region and, in 2011, Lisa completed the Chemeketa Wine Studies Program and was awarded the Winemaking Associate of Applied Science Degree.
She worked at some of the North Willamette Valley’s top wineries including Stoller Family Estate, Adelsheim Vineyard, Dobbes Family Estate, and Shea Wine Cellars before crafting her first Pinot noir in the Burner garage in 2014. Building on the success of the 2014 garagiste vintage, Lisa and Mike joined the family of winemakers at Day Camp in Dundee, Oregon in 2015.
