Larry has a BA from Cornell University and an MA from the University of Pittsburgh. These days Pexton enjoys traveling with his wife and spending time with their granddaughter.

Barnaby Tuttle

Please meet Barnaby Tuttle, founder of Teutonic Wines. It all started in 2002 when Barnaby was the wine buyer at Papa Haydn Restaurant in Portland’s southeast location. German wine importer Ewald Moseler, showed him 14 different Rieslings from Germany’s famed Mosel wine region. Barnaby bought all 14 and started one of the largest German wine lists in Portland. That same night he told his wife, Olga that he needed to learn how to make wines that are as expressive to terroir (expression of the place the grapes are grown) as these Rieslings. Fast forward a few years and Teutonic Wines was born.
