Ruth Lewandowski Wines are all natural, organic, unfiltered, and unfined wines. While the grapes are grown in Mendocino Country, California, the winemaking process takes place in Utah. Ultimately, the end goal is to plant and grow 100% of the grapes in Utah.
Evan Lewandowski moved to Utah to attend the University of Utah and ski. During this time he fell in love with Utah and decided to stay after graduation. He acquired a passion for wine and a dream of becoming a winemaker while working at the wine bar known as The Spotted Frog (since closed). This is where Evan met Zev Rovine. Zev is currently a natural wine importer but was the owner of The Spotted Frog at this time. Zev became Evan's mentor and encouraged him to pursue his dream of becoming a winemaker.
Evan left Utah to work at wineries around the world: Tenute Loacker, Torbreck, Cape Jaffa Wines, L'Ecole No. 41, Quintessa Winery, Bodega Colome, Quivira Vineyards, Oakvale Wines, and finally Domaine Binner. While in Washington, he earned a degree at The Walla Walla Institute for Viticulture and Enology. In 2012, after working at Binner in Alsace for several years, Evan Lewandowski moved back to Utah to start his own winery.
