TASTE News Service, June 24, 2016 - Zach Cartwright’s great grandfather was a winemaker on the Ohkay Owingeh (San Juan) Native American reservation in New Mexico. 

Zach never met his grandfather, but as the first person in his family to attend college, he was inspired by him. He earned a biochemistry degree at New Mexico State University, with a focus on wine.

“My passion for wine only grew after I got an internship at Rio Grande Winery in Las Cruces, New Mexico,” said Zach. “Gordon Steel, the winery owner, was a graduate of the wine program at Washington State University and insisted I look for graduate school opportunities at WSU.”
