PRODUCER BACKGROUND

Portland Oregon’s Bow & Arrow Winery is owned by New York transplant Scott Frank. He moved west after 9/11 when he watched the tragedy from the 47th floor of a Manhattan skyscraper. His wife, Dana, owns Dame, a popular wine bar in Portland.

With no job and no previous winery experience, Frank bluffed his way into a job at the wine department of New Seasons Market where he realized that good wine didn’t have to come at a high price. He began to envision a future in wine when working harvest at the influential Cameron estate winery in Dundee, eventually becoming assistant winemaker.
