WINE STORY

High Pass Winery

Winemaker Dieter Boehm attended the University in Dresden, Germany and was inspired by the region's vineyards and wine villages. He noted the modern European viticulture approach, with vine spacing and sustainable farming practices that nurtured both the soil and grape, supporting quality crops.

He started his own vineyard at High Pass in the 80s and area winemakers were eager to buy his premium wine grapes. While he worked the vineyard, Dieter learned about winemaking, producing small batches. In 1994 he had his first commercial crush. He is hands-on with production, involved in every step from the vine to the bottle, and is proud his wine is both sustainable and affordable. Dieter also manages four other area vineyards: Morias, Pridddy, Union School and Murphy.  

Dieter's wife, Fridah, manages the tasting room and is known as a gracious hostess during her famous "African Nights."
