Ethan has been growing grapes and making wine at Shelburne Vineyard in Vermont for twelve years. He is responsible for approximately twenty acres of vines including Marquette, Petite Pearl, LaCrescent, and Louise Swenson. He also grows the Frontenac family, Riesling and L’Acadie Blanc. The winery produces 6,000+ cases annually, with a diversity of styles. Ethan firmly believes in quality viticulture and enjoys being part of the full cycle of winegrowing. He is committed to highlighting the potential of the northern varietals through sound viticulture and premium winemaking. Most recently, Ethan developed a sub-brand for SV called Iapetus, whose wines aim to tell the story of the Champlain Valley through careful viticulture and minimalist winemaking. Ethan also serves as Treasurer for the Vermont Grape and Wine Council.
