Jim Arterberry Maresh reopened his family winery, founded by dad Fred Arterberry, at the age of 24. His family were some of the first farmers to plant vineyards in Dundee. He grew up on the farm, helping his mother Martha and grandparents Jim and Loie in the vineyard. He has a tremendous future ahead – that old red barn might one day become his new winery.

Morgan Broadley and wife Jessica are well established as the next generation at Broadley Vineyards. Morgan has worked together with parents Craig and Claudia for over ten years.
