OUR PEOPLE

Judy Lassa – Founder/Owner

Judy focuses on wine sales and event management.  When not spending time in the winery or on the vineyard, she is goes back and forth between Oregon and Boise, ID where she is Sr. Vice-president for a local company.  With a degree in paper science and engineering, her corporate business experience, and a love for farming from her days growing up on a dairy farm, she enjoys all aspects of the wine industry and provides critical expertise to the business.

 

Lonnie Krawl – Founder/Owner/Winemaker

With help from family, friends and several Oregon winemakers, Lonnie has been the winemaker since the first vintage in 2008.  With a degree in Chemical Engineering, he enjoys the chemistry and applications in the wine-making process.  Although still learning every day, he picked up his wine-making start with a few classes from Walla Walla Enological and Viticulture school and worked several harvests with Trisaetum and other wineries.  He too spends time flying between Oregon and Boise, working as a Vice-President for a company in Boise, Idaho.

 

Kyle and Blake Krawl

From Kyle designing the Mouvance logo and developing labels to Blake helping in the winery, they find time to help mom and dad while attending school at Oregon State and Pierce College.

 

Frank and Marion Lassa

After 30 years of operating a dairy farm and raising their family in Wisconsin, Frank and Marion moved to the Southwest.  They had the opportunity to travel and visited and hiked many of the parks and Native American cultural centers.  Frank and Marion moved to Rickreall, Oregon to live on the vineyard where they work with our viticulture management company Results Partners to help run the daily operations on the vineyard.


Alexandra Styhl

Our new tasting room associate has a bachelors degree in Multi-Ethnic Studies and is currently purusing medical school to begin Fall 2015.  Her passion for wine, paired with an eagerness to learn, makes her the perfect fit for our tasting room.
