Domaine Serene Makes Changes to Winemaking Staff

DAYTON, OR--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - Today, Ken Evenstad, founder and owner of Domaine Serene Vineyards & Winery, announced that winemaker Tony Rynders has left to pursue other interests.

Drew Voit, former Associate Winemaker at Domaine Serene from 2004 until April, 2008, will return as consulting winemaker and oversee interim day-to-day operations as Domaine Serene considers potential head winemaker candidates over the next several weeks.

"This is a natural evolution for Domaine Serene," says Ken Evenstad, "We are speaking with many exceptional candidates who share our commitment to quality, and I assure that once we have filled the position it will be with the right person for our program. In the meantime we have the utmost confidence in Drew as our consulting winemaker, and our strong winemaking team is well prepared to manage this transition."


Domaine Serene Vineyards & Winery, founded in 1989 by Ken and Grace Evenstad, is located in the Dundee Hills of Oregon and produces ultra-premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from their three estate vineyards.
