Winemaker by day. Musician by night.
During his horticulture, enology and viticulture studies at Washington State University, Shane Moore paid his dues as a "cellar rat". He learned the rhythms of the winery from the seat of a forklift while deepening his natural affinity for the land and the vine. Shane worked in wineries in Canada, Western Australia, and Israel’s Golan Heights before joining Jackson Family Wines in 2011 as an enologist specializing in Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. In 2013, he returned to the Pacific Northwest to be the winemaker for Zena Crown Vineyard. In 2016, he also assumed the head winemaking role for Gran Moraine. A winemaker, musician, and North Face-wearing lover of the outdoors, Shane is right at home in the granola-meets-Portlandia-meets-grape culture of the Willamette Valley. He plays specific music for each of his wine's fermentations and aging, which you can find noted on each wine's technical information sheet!
