Jennifer and I met in 1999 in San Diego while working together at a biotechnology company. I was a molecular biologist, and Jennifer was an administrative assistant. She says it all started over the fax machine, but that's another story (because it has nothing to do with wine).
Not to digress, we soon started dating, and frequenting the wineries of Temecula, Santa Barbara, Los Olivos, San Luis Obispo, and Paso Robles became regular weekend jaunts for us and our trusty companion, Hogan, our German Shepherd.
We felt unique among wine tasters as we shunned the posh spas and bed and breakfast places because we preferred to camp.

Charles started his first vineyard as an experiment in 1997. Within a few years, he made his first vintage from the estate vineyard, and the result was two surprisingly delicious white wines. Since his homegrown wine was such a consistent success, in 2005 he started making red wine from grapes grown in California and eastern Washington. The more wine Charles made, the more local interest grew. As of 2011, Inyo Vineyard and Winery opened its doors for business.
