Originally from Arizona, Desiree moved to Oregon's wine country with her husband, who is a vintner and sommelier. The way she tells it, he came here to learn about pinot noir and bribed her to come along by buying her an airline ticket and renting a convertible. Once she visited Oregon, there was no going back. Desiree loves the beauty of the Willamette Valley, the excitement of opening a salon and all the people she has met here.
