REX HILL Vineyards has participated in Oregon's sustainability movement from its outset, our vineyards and winery are certified LIVE (Low Input Viticulture & Enology, Inc.). We are committed to helping our independent growers to farm organically and our Jacob-Hart Vineyard is Demeter certified Biodynamic. Biodynamic farming is the most stringent of organic farming practices and takes into count not only the physical aspects of farming, but the energetic and spiritual aspects as well.

SAM TANNAHILL: Founding Partner
Sam worked in wineries and vineyards in Burgundy while earning a post-graduate degree in winemaking from the University de Dijon. He worked with Ted Lemon at Littorai before serving as Winemaker at Archery Summit for seven years. In 2002, he joined Deb & Bill Hatcher with wife, Cheryl Francis, to launch A to Z Wineworks. A to Z quickly became Oregon's fastest growing winery and in 2007 purchased the legacy winery, REX HILL. A to Z has worked with over 100 vineyards in Oregon and has more winemaking experience than any other winery. All owned and long leased vineyards are farmed to Biodynamic tenets. Sam served as president of the Oregon Wine Board and Oregon Winegrower's Association and currently serves on the board of the Oregon Wine Research Institute, the Willamette Valley Wineries Association and the Oregon Business Association.
