- Craig Haarmeyer
Craig Haarmeyer is a self taught winemaker and has come to us as a natural talent with experience in making small scale, hand crafted wines. He started out in the restaurant business working for his parents whom operated several specialty food establishments ranging from European influenced delicatessens to full scale Italian style restaurants. His passion for food, beer and wine lead him to start home brewing and home winemaking over 20 years ago and his critical analysis and enjoyment of these things lead him to the commercial winemaking field in 2000 and to Revolution in 2007. After conceiving of and starting the port wine program at Revolution his dedication and expertise has earned him the role of Winemaker at Revolution Wines. At any given time you can find him in the cellar or the lab, diligently hand crafting all of our wines and the wines of our custom crush clients. Our Urban Winery tradition is alive with his efforts, as you will see and taste in our 2009 Pinot Grigio, Chenin Blanc and the St. Rey label wines with the vintage style ports and other fine wines.
- Jason Smith
Jason Smith is a student of winemaking in every sense of the phrase. While perusing his formal education in Oenology he is instrumental in the creation of our wines. Not only does he contribute the better part of his knowledge in day to day cellar operations founded on 10 years of commercial winemaking from his experience at St. James Winery in Missouri but his enthusiasm and high standards drive him to evaluate each wine with our head winemaker. Together they hand craft everything that we produce.
- Alex Haarmeyer
Alex has worked his way up here at Revolution. He began by cleaning tanks and barrels, sanitizing equipment and delivering wine. Now, Alex can be found doing the daily rounds of SO2ing the wines, gathering barrel samples, gassing the tanks, racking, pumping and taking care of many other cellar tasks. He works very closely with both Craig and Jason in keeping the wines here at Revolution the best they can be.
