As a New York native, it was an impromptu trip to the Fingerlakes that began Tyson Crowley's fascination with the winemaking world. He graduated from Syracuse (Operations Management degree) and moved across the country to become the cellar hand at Erath. He loved it! Working with Rob Stuart, he learned the ins and outs of winemaking while falling in love with the winemaking craft as well as the unique terroir of Oregon.
Tyson expanded his knowledge with a trip to New Zealand then returned to Oregon to work with Doug Tunell at Brickhouse and Jim Prosser at J.K. Carriere. The passion and commitment to the land combined with the attention to detail of these two men inspired Tyson! His desire to keep learning and growing led him to Archery Summit then Cameron Winery. With the support of John Paul at Cameron, Tyson made his first four barrels of Entre Nous Pinot Noir at Cameron in 2005. Production increased to six barrels in 2006 and in 2007, Tyson moved Crowley Wines' production to August Cellars Coop winemaking facility where he continues making wine today.
In 2014, production was at 85 barrels and counting!
