Dorian Goodwin (Wolaniuk): Cellar Master/Assistant Winemaker
Dorian’s experience with fruit originally began in 2001. He became familiar with the fruit game by learning and successfully growing organic fruit such as cherries, apples, and peaches. At that point in time there was an interest in merging the wine and fruit industry where they could co-exist harmoniously. This new development in thinking peaked Dorian’s interest and he fell head over heels with the fermentation process.
From there he had the opportunity to work for Elephant Island as a cellar hand. He became well versed in the fermentation process with fruit. His deep love for fermentation continued to bring him deeper into the winery world, which led him to Joie Winery. For a number of years Dorian worked in the cellar, vines, tasting room, and even played music for Joie Winery. Now, in the 2019 year Dorian continues to hone his skills in Lang’s cellar with Robert Thielicke, our Consulting Winemaker.
