The People Who Make the Difference
Dennis McFall, Director of Design & Operations
Education: BA degree in Architecture, University of
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.”
