Todd Hansen is the owner/winemaker at Longplay Wine, a small producer of pinot noir and Chardonnay wines. Prior to entering the world of wine in 2005, Todd spent a bit over ten years working for the U.S. government in Washington DC and around the world. All of the grapes used to produce Longplay wines are sourced from Lia's Vineyard, a 50-acre, south-facing parcel in the Chehalem Mountains AVA with plantings dating to 1990. The name “Longplay” communicates the philosophy of creating "analog wine for a digital world - no overdubbing, no remixing." The goal is to capture the character of the vineyard and the vintage in every bottle with minimal intervention.
Todd is featured winemaker for the Honoring 40 years in the Willamette Valley Dinner on Saturday, March 2, at 7:00pm.
