David Platt

David Platt was born and raised just outside of London, England. While growing up, David and his family vacationed in wine regions throughout France and Germany. It is on those trips that David’s interest in viticulture began. He moved to the United States in 1981 and studied biology at the University of Oregon in Eugene. David’s interest in wine continued to grow while watching the early development of vineyards in the Willamette Valley.

David and his wife Lisa traveled extensively to major wine regions in the early years of their marriage. They began looking for property that would lend itself to a wine venture in 2000. In 2006, they found a small hillside parcel in Edna Valley. After getting to know their land and specific microclimate, they planted Chêne Vineyards in 2009.

David began making wine in his garage, and in recent years has had the opportunity to work with several well known wine makers in the Edna Valley. His passion is to make small lot, handcrafted wines from his organically farmed estate fruit with minimal intervention or additions.
