The Team: Laurent Montalieu

Laurent Montalieu, with a family heralding from Bordeaux, an interest in viticulture was natural and led him to study vineyard management and winemaking at the Institute of Oenology in Bordeaux. After work in France and the Napa Valley, he came to Oregon as winemaker at Bridgeview vineyards and after, as partner and winemaker at WillaKenzie Estate. With his marriage to Danielle Andrus, the couple launched Domaine Danielle Laurent and Solena Cellars; and have since become co-partners of NW Wine Company, NW Wine Bar and Hyland Vineyards.
