Co-winemakers, Fossil & Fawn
Natty wines to fawn over
As self-described “Deputy Chief of Stuff” and “Vice President of Wine Things,” Mosbacher and Fischer (respectively) create tremendous wines at their tiny Oregon estate. The duo, partners in business and in life, represents a movement of younger winemakers that let nature take the lead. They utilize low-intervention methods, reject additives and possess the unique ability to reimagine what a grape should be, like their punchy Pinot Noir and bright red Pinot Gris. The two display a mastery of modern marketing and how best to convey their compelling story.
