With Italian roots and childhood memories of his grandfather and family making wine in their basement, Giorgio Furioso purchased Juliard Vineyard in 2014 to start what he thought would be a small venture.

"We never did it as a commercial endeavor and when I got to a certain part of my life where I thought I could do a small project somewhere, I started looking around and some friends of mine had come to Oregon and said, 'You should come to Oregon.
