Wynne was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, spending time on her family vineyard outside of Newberg during her youth. Not surprisingly, Wynne is now the winemaker, and co-owner with her father, at her family winery Ribbon Ridge Winery and Ridgecrest Vineyards. She also makes all the wine for another small, local winery called 00 Wines. She has served on many wine-industry boards, and her collaborative nature and broad experience with fundraisers, management, and team work make her work with Nordic Northwest second nature.

Why is Nordic Northwest special to you?
Wine has a great value in many Nordic countries, and after having been through Denmark and Sweden on multiple occasions, as well as having roots in Gothenburg, Sweden, I love our shared culture that embraces food and wine so intensely. I also have a new child on the way that I would like to continue to expose to his family’s heritage for many years to come.
