Originally from Virginia, Spencer has embraced a nomadic lifestyle for the past couple years. He taught English for the Peace Corps in Armenia, worked for a luxury hotel in Alaska, and wrote proposals for an architecture/engineering firm in Washington D.C. Through his travels, he discovered a fervent love for hospitality and wine. What started as a harvest internship in the Willamette Valley turned into a full-blown career in the wine industry. His transient mentality has shifted to that of someone willing to prove himself in any capacity at Apolloni Vineyards. You may find him in the cellar topping barrels or assisting with bottling, but his true passion lies with customers in the tasting room, helping with cellar club, events, and nerding out about wine (bonus points if you can talk with him about Virginia wine).
