Tyler Bitner | Tasting Room Assistant Manager

I graduated from South Dakota State University in 2011 with an extremely applicable journalism and advertising degree. After working various desk jobs in advertising and broadcasting, I decided to move to Oregon and start a career in the wine industry. 
 
I took my first job in the wine industry when I turned 21. I knew nothing about wine at the time, and had to choose between working in a tasting room or flipping burgers. Easy choice, right? Wine quickly became an interest and I started reading and tasting anything I could get my hands on. Most of what I know about wine has come from working with educated and intelligent people. Recently I've begun taking wine classes and completed WSET LVL 3 in 2015. Long term I'm looking at getting into wine education.
 
Days off are spent exploring wineries and breweries, reading in busy public spaces and practicing funny voices. 

What You Like About Pinot Noir: I love how different and unique each vintage can be. Every year is a round of new flavors!
 
Favorite Food Pairing: Champagne and plain potato chips. Sounds lame, but it's delicious.
 
Place You’d Like to Travel to: New Zealand and Southern France are at the top of the list.
 
Favorite Drink Besides Wine: Beer, Coffee, Gin and Beer. It's listed twice for a reason.
