Our journey began 8 years ago in this same spirit of collaboration and commitment, aligning our business with world class winemakers, top notch vineyard managers and superior customer service professionals. Owners Julie and Bret Pittsinger invite you to enjoy a one of a kind experience featuring the regions first "bubbly"! Come sit on the beautifully landscaped patio, relax by the water features, and let our staff take the best of care in making your Karma experience second to none.

Ron Miller

Cellar Manager
ron@goodkarmawines.com

Ron joins our staff from Portland, Oregon.  Ron has jumped in with every ounce of energy to learn, and to manage our wines within the cave.  Don't be surprised to see unusually creative themes around the estate, or perhaps even your picture on our wall.  As a former photographer/videographer, Ron brings to Karma a wide range of creative abilities.  His ability to relate to customers while topping off barrels is truly unique and an inspiration for all of us working here at Karma.  Don’t miss his cave tours, they are certain to entertain.
