Richard Mansfield

Winemaker, North American Wines, Blend Poet

A highly accomplished and passionate winemaker, Richard applies his sophisticated intellect to everything he does. In college, he learned German just to meet girls. To party with his friends, he made wine. That brainy approach to having fun eventually landed him in the wine business. After earning his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from the University of Oregon, he moved to Germany for a 3-year apprenticeship, and completed his dual Master's degrees in Viticulture and Enology from Germany's famed Institute of Winemaking in Geisenheim. He then moved back to the States and established his own winery, Callahan Ridge, in Oregon. Driven to expand his knowledge and extend his mastery, he moved to Napa, where he honed his skills as Winemaker at well-respected wineries such as Stags' Leap Winery, Palmaz Vineyards and the Bradford Mountain Winery. He joined WX in 2008 and his experience and depth of knowledge made an instant impact on the team. He has a deep commitment to quality and an exceptional ability for creating innovative blends that bring forward the best in each varietal. Away from work, Mansfield spends time with his wife Leslie at their home in St. Helena.

Central Coast, California - United States

Oregon - United States

When David Lett and Charles Coury planted wine grapes in Oregon’s Willamette Valley in 1965, many people thought they were undertaking the impossible. Oregon, however, has proved to be truly unique growing region, with a special combination of soil, climate and hard working, innovative individuals. With its northern latitude, it has long, warm days with up to 15 hours of sunlight in the summer. Cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean and Columbia Gorge temper the heat, bringing crisp nights that slow ripening and encourage complex flavor development. The reputation of this area continues to grow as winemakers consistently push boundaries, creating award-winning wines and setting standards in progressive, sustainable practices.
