MORGAN LEE - Winemaker
Growing up in the Midwest, Morgan Lee never planned to make wine. But during his senior year at Purdue University where he was in the hospitality management program, he took a wine appreciation course and his mind was forever changed.
In 2005, he headed to Michigan where he worked on his first wine grape harvest. The next year he landed an internship at Columbia Crest where he worked alongside Juan Munoz-Oca.
By 2007, he joined David and Cindy Lawson at Covington Cellars as the assistant winemaker. The primary focus at Covington Cellars is Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and the Lawsons wanted to keep it that way. As a way to explore different varieties, they decided to launch a second winery.
In 2008, Donovan Claflin joined the team and in 2009 launched Two Vintners, which was named after Lee and Claflin. Today Lee continues to produce award-winning wines.
