Angie Shaltry - After receiving her bachelor's degrees in Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and Biochemistry in 1999 from the University of Idaho, Angie began her wine career in the laboratory at Alexander Valley Vineyards in Healdsburg, California. She quickly learned that her passion resided in the art of winemaking.
In pursuit of learning the craft of wine, in 2002 she began an apprenticeship under the world-renowned Helen Turley. Turley's projects included Bryant Family, Blankiet Estate, and Turley's own Marcassin Wine Company.
2007 marked a new chapter, when Angie returned to her home state in pursuit of an ideal location to raise her boys McKai, Aiden, and Noah. Périple Wines started with California and Oregon Pinot Noir in 2007 and expanded to include Washington wines in 2008. Currently, the winery produces an average of 700 cases per vintage.
