The People Who Make the Difference

Dennis McFall, Director of Design & Operations

Education: BA degree in Architecture, University of Oregon

Dennis is a native of the Pacific Northwest. He became interested in wine gradually, as the Oregon wine industry developed. Over time, traveling and learning about wines became a passion for him. Fourteen years ago he decided to combine this love with his years of design and construction experience and building beautiful and practical wine cellars.

“I took classes at the University of California, Davis, to learn more about wine and its storage requirements. I visited outstanding wine cellars in the U.S., Europe and South America. I became convinced there was no one in the Northwest creating the types of cellars that wine enthusiasts – here, or in any region of the United States – would like to have in their homes today. I wanted to change that.”

Donna McFall, Owner and CEO
Education: BA degree in Theater, minor in Architecture, Portland State University

Donna’s background in theater and interior design is well suited to the task of helping clients achieve the cellar they most desire.

She combines an insistence on excellence in both design and business practice with a focus on being truly responsive to our clients.

“We believe in providing individually tailored solutions. We consider our clients’ style, their collection and their resources. Our by-word is appropriateness. Sometimes what’s needed is a small, economical cellar. Sometimes the need is for an extraordinary space that not only houses a large collection but also expresses our client’s personality and gives them generous entertaining options. Our real business is helping our clients enjoy their passion, and fortunately, that’s what we love to do.”
