To my Constituents,
Not having paid attention on Career Day, my occupational choices upon leaving my fourteen years post as a Managing Director of Domaine Drouhin in 2001 were winemaker and accordion repairman. Doing a bit of market research, I found that Oregon was already saturated with accordion repairman (2) but there weren't nearly enough winemakers (250). Thus, William Hatcher Pinot Noir came to fruition in a manner of speaking. To ginger the challenge, my wife Deb and I decided that we should test the design limits of a thirty year marriage in becoming business partners. Thus, William Hatcher Wines was conceived to create further amusement for their friends, penal labor for their children and, oh yes, the A to Z and William Hatcher labels. With every bottle you purchase, one dollar will go toward the Hatcher's marriage counseling fund.
From the doghouse - as usual,
