Originally raised in Washington, Aryn came home after a five year stint in the Napa Valley. During his time in Napa he worked for wineries such as Golden State Vintners, Edgewood Estates in St. Helena and Silver Oak at their Napa facility. He then moved to work for a consulting company that focused on Chemical Engineering within the wine industry,and it was here that Aryn says he gained huge insights on the industry as the company had almost 900 clients. He has always said that being able to achieve something in the winery usually means you needed to experience it at another place. Well, having been in most of the wineries that we all dream about, he has the unique ability to say he has actually seen those things first hand. Having tasted some of the wines that Aryn has already made here at Matthews,we are excited about the future and what we believe will be the new standard in Washington State. Along with making our wine, Aryn makes wine for other wineries, including Gard Vintners Mullan Road Cellars, a Washington winery owned by Cakebread Cellars of Napa Valley and of recent his own project, Alleromb Winery.
