I’ve posted two videos from my July 2011 visit to the Willamette Valley in Oregon and now posting the second part of a fun interview with Don Lange.

Don started Lange Estate Vineyards & Winery in the late 80s, so he while not a pioneer few would argue he is an iconic figure when you way Lange Winery’s accolades and name recognition.

Don was a last-minute stand-in for his son Jesse. Lange is a former songwriter and performer who seems to really enjoy life. You’ll pick up on some of that in this short clip.

As previously noted, these clips are rather raw and informal. The videos were originally shot to do a more extensive piece. That didn’t happen so I’m sharing them now. It’s really some great stuff.
