Capitello Oregon + New Zealand Wine Tasting

Ray Walsh, a Native New Zealander found his calling in the wine industry in the late 1980’s while backpacking through Europe and working a harvest in Germany’s Mosel region. Bitten with the wine bug, Ray hurried back to New Zealand to complete his enology studies, earning his degree in fermentation science.
Soon after, he began working alongside Kim Crawford and with New Zealand giant Villa Maria Estate before being recruited by Ed King of King Estate Winery in Eugene, Oregon. Drawn to Oregon’s terroir and the growing reputation as the top region in the world for Pinot Noir, Walsh excitedly began his new life as an Oregon winemaker in 1993. Working alongside colleagues Will Bucklin, raised King’s profile and reputation as a top producer of quality Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, garnering many top awards, including placing King Estate wines into Wine Spectator’s top 100 list. Ray made a choice to step away from the larger winery format, and started his own craft artisan brand, Capitello Wines in 2003, which is now running 20 years strong.
