Randy Gold has been deeply involved in the Rogue Valley wine industry since 1980. He began converting a Bartlett pear orchard to vineyard in 1983 and has been supplying local and out of area wineries with grapes from Gold Vineyard since 1986. Randy and his wife Rebecca founded Pacific Crest Vineyard Services in 2006 to provide much needed vineyard management services to other growers in the area.
Jason Cole moved to the Rogue Valley in 2012 and became a partner in Pacific Crest Vineyard Services in 2015. After 5 years of partnership, Randy retired to focus his energies on Gold Vineyard and traveling the world with Rebecca. Jason has since taken on the role of owner/operator, continuing to provide vineyard management and consulting services to the Rogue Valley.
Jason finished his Masters’ thesis on Tempranillo grown in the Rogue Valley AVA in 2012. He decided to embrace the region as his own after two years studying and working abroad in France, Portugal and South Africa. Along with Pacific Crest Vineyard Services Jason also owns and manages Cole Family Vineyards, a vineyard and grapevine nursery located in Applegate Valley.
