Van Duzer Vineyards | Dallas, Oregaon | https://www.vanduzer.com

Florent Merlier proudly heads Van Duzer’s winemaking program, creating elegant, vibrant blends that he feels can only be developed in the unique Van Duzer Corridor micro-climate. To achieve this refinement, he has driven the winemaking focus on small lot presses, sorting and gentle handling. Since starting at Van Duzer in 2010, Florent has closely examined each lot, working with the vineyard manager to grow ideal fruit.
A native of Burgundy, France, the physics, and chemistry undergraduate was captivated by winemaking when he helped a friend operate a family owned 40-acre domain in Burgundy.
He subsequently altered his career path from cinema to wine and in the process met his wife, Krista, an Oregonian, interning at the same winery. Flo received his Diploma of Viticulture from the University of Dijon before relocating to the Willamette Valley.
