Alton is all about the wine, and not about the wine at all. After years of tasting, exploring, and now making it ourselves, we've learned that every bottle has one thing in common - what matters is the life you pair it with.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Did you think the tasting room decorated itself? Ashley cut her teeth in the fashion world at Mercer & Co., a small West Coast clothing boutique, before a 10 year (and counting) career at Nordstrom. Her love of Chardonnay and travel (especially when they are paired together) has been an inspiration behind our vision for Alton. Ashley is our expert in creating the right vibe, whether it’s our customer facing brand image, photography, music, or color palettes. Her downtime is spent with Hari (@winerydawg) most likely planning her next trip or dinner party, or with Joe on the golf course.
Farm kid gone winemaker, for real. But not before a 17 year retail career (and a timely trip to Argentina) made him realize there was more life out there. We give him the dirty jobs and the toughest problems and watch him solve it all without breaking a sweat. Always one to love a new challenge, Joe has spent the last two years learning to make wine at the Walla Walla CC Enology & Viticulture program and in the cellar at Dusted Valley. He’s the heart of our winemaking team and the engine behind our business-minded approach to Alton. When he’s not making wine, out in the vineyards, or hosting tastings, you can catch him smoking all sorts of meats on his Big Green Egg or on the golf course hitting bombs and draining birdie putts.
