The dream of Erin Glenn Winery was conceived in a garage in Hood River, Oregon in 1997, when Tim and Erin Schechtel began experimenting with grape juice leftover from a crush plant nearby. There was no way of knowing that that very first vintage of Gewürztraminer would be the beginning of a life-changing adventure for Tim, Erin & their family of four daughters. Tim and Erin moved their ever expanding family east to The Dalles ~ where rural simplicity and a community ready for change expressed everything they hoped for.

Erin Glenn’s first estate vineyards of Syrah & Gewürztraminer were planted in the spring of 2002 and the winery’s maiden production happened the following year, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris as the offerings. Later came the birth of “Tantrum Red” ~ a fun red blend, and what has become Erin Glenn’s signature in the Columbia Gorge. Tantrum is a blend of locally grown fruit ~ Pinot Noir, Merlot & Barbera.

Erin Glenn now produces such little-known varietals as Tempranillo, Dolcetto, Barbera and Viognier, as well as the more familiar wines like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Sauvignon & Syrah.

The people of The Dalles have welcomed the Schechtel family with open arms and hearts and have been integral in creating “The Mint” an urban winery/ "joint" and local hangout. Local musicians can be found jamming at The Mint every Friday evening and larger concerts are promoted there as often as winemaking allows. Wine tasting is always complimentary.

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.
