Scholarship Recipiant: Matthew Wieland has his Wagon of Wine loaded!
Matthew Wieland begin his adventures in wine in Minnesota, not exactly a mecca for high quality wine discovery. Fortunately, his mother had a penchant for Washington and California wine, and planted a seed in Matthew’s vinous core.
Building an appreciation for more complex wines over the years, he lived in Washington, and now lives in Portland – a prefect place to hone in on the idiosyncrasies of Pinot Noir.
In less than a year, he has created a blog and a following that is well respected by the local wine community in Portland and beyond. He is excited to attend WBC as he seeks to expand his network, and find inspiration for future work.
As a 10th grade English teacher, he is one of our everyday heros. We look forward to having him in Corning! This will be Matthew’s first WBC, so let’s seek him out and show him how it’s done! Stop by and say hello:
