While we count down to the 25th anniversary celebration of ¡Salud!, get to know the members of our esteemed Vintners Circle a little bit better as they answer a handful of our hard-hitting questions. Next up, WillaKenzie Estate Founder, Ronni Lacroute.

  1. How do you unwind after a long day?  I indulge in a meditative session of vinyasa yoga and often go out to watch a live performance of a play or chamber music concert.
  2. What do you like best about Oregon?  Oregon is a very special place because people reach out and support each other here.  When I first came here, I was impressed by the kindness of the people, as well as the striking beauty of the land.
  3. What is your favorite beverage besides wine?  I love the whole wide world of tea, from white to green to black teas, and also herbal tisanes.
  4. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?  When I was a preteen and then teenager, I absolutely wanted to be a research scientist, but I became a French teacher instead because women were not welcomed into the science lab when I was in college.
  5. What is the most used app on your phone?  Since I document and share on social media every event that I attend, as well as every wild animal that I spot, I use my Camera Plus app several times a day to take photos and edit them.

Join us at this year’s ¡Salud! on November 11 and 12 and get to know our Vintners Circle winemakers in person!  Click here to purchase your tickets online.
