De la boue
Limited production, single-vineyard wines from Oregon.
Travis Todd began his time in the wine world at the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana. During his time there he was promoted to wine buyer and ran the wine program. With the opportunity to develop his palate by tasting some of the world's best wines, the passion for appreciating what he could taste turned into an obsessive quest to find out how to coax flavor and aroma out of the site. A trip to Pinot Camp in 2014 opened his eyes to the great soil in Oregon. Following that trip, he worked a harvest and fell in love with the work. He and his wife Tess made Oregon their home in 2017 and during the next five years he went from cellar hand to Head Winemaker at one of the largest wineries in Oregon.
De la boue began as a passion project in 2019 with 150 cases and has grown into a full time business. Travis farms the 5-acre organic vineyard, makes the wine and sources fruit from our vineyard partners. In 2021 he left his job to pursue de la boue full time.
