Ian Burch Portrait

Ian Burch Winemaker

Most oenophiles who venture to France to get a taste of Old World wine culture bring home memories of unforgettable meals or a new favorite producer. Ian brought home his life calling and a passion for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. His winemaking stints abroad—propelled by a wine education degree from California Polytechnic University—instilled in him an undying appreciation for cool-climate winemaking.

“The Loire is where I fell in love with wine,” Ian says. “Burgundy is where I fell for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.”

Ian’s reverence for these two noble varieties ultimately led him to Oregon’s Willamette Valley and Archery Summit. After years of making wine on both sides of the equator, Ian made his Oregon winemaking debut at prominent Willamette Valley label Evening Land Vineyards.

Ian considers Burgundian winemaker Dominique Lafon among his greatest mentors and is constantly impressed by the sense of community in the wine world, whether it’s in the French countryside or on the crush pads of the Dundee Hills. Driven by the pioneering spirit of New World enology, Ian continues to help chart Archery Summit’s exemplary path while honoring the uniqueness and history of its Dundee Hills sites.

He lives in the nearby Eola-Amity Hills, where he enjoys gardening, cooking, and exploring Oregon with his wife, son, and daughter.

Tim Scott Portrait

Tim Scott Vineyard Manager

Among the most dedicated and extremely organized, Tim tends to our estate vines. His expertise comes from roles at acclaimed Oregon wineries like Rex Hill Vineyards and Domaine Drouhin. A superb viticulturist, Tim has helped elevate the Willamette Valley’s reputation since his first vineyard planting in the 1980s.

“Each season is like playing a chess match with Mother Nature,” Tim says. “Thinking you’ll win is a bit arrogant. If I can achieve a tie, that is my measure of a successful vintage.”

Tim especially credits what occurs between vineyard rows, where committed, tireless crews help him establish the foundation for every good vintage. When asked about finding balance between work and life, Tim is likely to shrug, knowing that for him they’re one and the same.

Ever the student, Tim continues to experiment in the vineyard and plays an active role in the viticultural research community. He brings 35 years of industry experience to Archery Summit and its coveted vineyard sites. The Oregon native’s deft touch in the field ensures exemplary fruit every harvest.

Karina Gordon Portrait

Karina Gordon Hospitality Manager

Karina brings her creative passion and finesse for crafting and executing guest experiences to Archery Summit. Raised in Oregon, she has spent 17 years honing her expertise in the fine-dining circuit, at one point curating a list of more than 50 wines. Working the restaurant floor inspired a permanent appreciation for introducing people to new and remarkable wines, especially Oregon Pinot Noir.

In her seven years at Archery Summit, Karina has established a reputation for setting high standards to ensure guests have experiences they will cherish. She played roles at fellow Willamette Valley producers Patton Valley Vineyard and ROCO Winery before settling in at Archery Summit. A resident of McMinnville, Karina loves to spend time with her family.

Chris Lopez Portrait

Chris Lopez Wine Club Manager

Chris got lost in wine for the first time during a camping trip in the Cascades just after his 21st birthday. He went on to moonlight as an intern sommelier while working days at a Los Angeles portrait studio. After an immersive spell in the California Central Coast wine scene, Chris pushed north to the Willamette Valley.

Having dedicated a decade to the industry, Chris is a direct-to-consumer specialist and especially deft at wine club orchestration. Away from the winery, he’s a budding politician serving his first term as a member of the city council of Monmouth. He loves a good river float and any excuse to go camping, camera in hand.

Corey Beyer Portrait

Corey Beyer Associate Winemaker

Corey has been with Archery Summit since the 2004 vintage. The Minnesotan worked for the Bureau of Land Management after studying at the University of Wisconsin. He surveyed wildlife and combated forest fires before entering the growing Oregon wine movement in the 1990s.

A staunch supporter of his Willamette Valley community, Corey appreciates the entire vinification process, from budbreak to bottling. “It’s great to play a part in creating something that people enjoy with friends and family,” he says. “It takes a lot of hands to make that great glass of wine.”

He lives in McMinnville with his wife, three children, and yellow Lab, Isis. A competitive golfer and outdoors enthusiast, Corey is currently perfecting his fly-tying abilities.

Anthony Sereni Portrait

Anthony Sereni Enologist

Anthony offers Archery Summit a skilled set of hands in both the cellar and the lab. The New Jersey native holds a master’s degree in food science from Oregon State University, where he specialized in enology. There, the ever-studious Anthony penned a detailed thesis on malolactic fermentation and its effects on wine mouthfeel.

A strong proponent of Chardonnay and the old blocks at Arcus Vineyard, Anthony first encountered wine while exploring the dining scene of Philadelphia. He credits a flavorful Riesling from Alsatian producer Domaine Ostertag for persuading him to explore a career in winemaking.

Away from the cellar, Anthony enjoys rock climbing, reading, writing, and cooking.

Brandon Gross Cellar Hand

Brandon is a native Oregonian with five Dundee Hills harvests under his belt. Previously at Domaine Roy, he brings both infectious enthusiasm and an analytical approach to the Archery Summit cellar.
Ken Bolick Portrait

Ken grew up in northern Michigan and attended college in Grand Rapids. He gained a lasting respect for wine while working at restaurants during his university days.

Ken proudly leads the direct-to-consumer and hospitality teams at Archery Summit, as well as at our three sister properties in Washington.

In his spare time, Ken enjoys hiking, cooking, and sharing wine with friends and family.
