Gary's Work
Gary is the master-mind, dreamer and philosopher of Blue Heron Vineyards. His vision is the reason for all that we are as a business, including the Vineyard, the Winery , the Farm, the B&B and the Celtic Cross. He often says he wears too many hats (and proved it one day by walking in the living room wearing about 20!). He is the vineyard master, the cellar master, the stick carver and main caretaker of the property.

His background is in Education. He graduated from the University of Tennessee- Chattanooga, where he had a four-year basketball scholarship as well as Masters Degrees from IU and Indiana State. He taught at Lookout Mountain Jr. High, TN, Troy School Elementary, Hoosier Heights Jr. High and Tell City High School until he ended up in prison…where he taught (got you there for a minute, didn’t I?). Before he retired in 2007, he was the Education Administrator at Branchville Correctional Center.

Lynn's Work
Lynn is an artist as well as co-owner of Blue Heron Vineyards. She works in a variety of media, but prefers acrylics, watercolor and pastels. Her paintings of Victorian-style Santas on aged barn wood and slate have attracted collectors from the region. Her work can be viewed at both the winery and B&B (one mile from the winery).

Lynn’s full-time job is now working with Blue Heron projects, as she recently retired from teaching Art in Tell City and Perry Central Community Schools after 33 years. Her academic background includes a BA from Kentucky Wesleyan College and MA from Western Kentucky University.

Blue Heron Walking Sticks
Gary is the sculptor of the walking sticks sold in the Blue Heron businesses. Most come from the property, then he adds his personal touch, enhancing each stick’s natural beauty. Others are carved with woodsman faces and designs by local craftsmen. The more decorative walking sticks boast a medallion designed by the Dauby’s and cast a the foundry in Grandview, Indiana.

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
