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.

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.

Karina Gordon Portrait

Karina Gordon Estate 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.

Denise Hager

Denise Hager Cellar Hands

Denise is a Southern California native who attended the University of California, Davis for her bachelor’s degree in Viticulture and Enology. After graduating, she traveled to several wine regions around the world to work harvest, including Anderson Valley, Marlborough, Napa, Margaret River, and Burgundy. Wishing for a more international view of winemaking in the classroom as well, she went abroad for post graduate wine studies in the south of France, Bordeaux, and northern Italy. From these experiences she discovered a profound appreciation for the wine industry, the people in it, and the many expressions of Pinot noir and Chardonnay wines. And, after testing out places all over the world, she decided to make the Willamette Valley her home. When not in the lab or caves here at Archery Summit, she can be found either at home tending to her plant collection or appreciating nature from a tent somewhere in the wilderness.

Nicholas Tucci

Nicholas Tucci Cellar Hands

Originally from Washington DC, Nicholas Tucci fell in love with wine while working in restaurants. Between cooking, serving, and managing, he learned what it meant to craft a flavor and an experience. After pursuing the course of study for the Court of Master Sommeliers, he took a chance on a vineyard and cellar internship in Australia. After working in the Barossa Valley, he travelled to Oregon, where he worked for Keeler Estate Vineyard and Adelsheim Vineyard before Archery Summit. While he has primarily worked in the cellar, he has a deep appreciation for viticulture, cultivated and advanced through Chemeketa Community College’s vineyard management course. When he’s not working, he spends his time gardening, cooking, and exploring the bounty of Oregon.
