Lane Tanner specializes in Pinot Noir and Syrah.Lane Tanner has been handcrafting elegant red wine since 1984. Once in Lake County, Lane landed work on the bottling line of Konocti Winery where her mom temped.

Bill tells him I'm 'the new enologist' and I'm thinking, what the hell does that mean... Never having heard the term... The short little man happened to be Andre Tchelistcheff, one of the founding fathers of California winemaking. A Russian émigré with a royal background, Andre came to California at age 36 and in 1938, crafted Beaulieu Vineyard's first Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. The rest, as they say, is history. Over the next five decades, Andre would take dozens of California winemakers under his knowledgeable wing and change the face of Golden State winemaking forever. In 1981, Andre opened the door to an enologist position for Lane at Firestone Winery in Santa Barbara County where she spent a tedious 18 months, despite Andre's presence as a consultant. In 1984, winemaker Ken Brown at nearby Zaca Mesa convinced her to take on considerably more responsibility as his enologist, and Hitching Post owner Frank Ostini (then Lane's boyfriend) hired her to make Hitching Post wines. Lane finally said yes to winemaking ... and meant it. Read less
