Bill Hatcher, Deb Hatcher, Sam Tannahill, and Cheryl Francis are photographed during an oral history interview at A to Z Wineworks in Newberg, Oregon on June 3, 2016. The four friends, partners in A to Z Wineworks and REX HILL Vineyards and Winery, were interviewed by Linfield College archivist Rachael Cristine Woody and staff member Rich Schmidt.
A to Z Wineworks was created in 2002 by four Oregon wine industry veterans: Cheryl Francis (Chehalem Winery), Sam Tannahill (Archery Summit Winery), Deb Hatcher (The Eyrie Vineyards), and Bill Hatcher (Domaine Drouhin Oregon). In 2006, the team purchased REX HILL Vineyards and Winery with several partners (including San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich).
