In 2010, Kate Norris and Thomas Monroe abandoned the corporate world in pursuit of their urban winemaking dreams and founded Division Winemaking Company in Portland’s hip South East neighbourhood. Sourcing grapes from some of Oregon’s finest vineyards, (all pesticide-free, organic or biodynamic), they produce classic Loire and Burgundy inspired wines in a natural, low-intervention way. They work closely with several organizations including the Oregon Wine Board and the Willamette Valley Wineries Association and have emerged as exciting leaders in Oregon winemaking today.
