Our People

Scott Shull
Founder and Winemaker

Since 1989, Scott Shull has been making Oregon wines—first as an independent producer, and since 1995 as a commercial winemaker at Raptor Ridge Winery. Scott strives to craft wines that are interesting to the palate and to the mind—wines of complexity, finesse and place. Born in Kentucky and raised in Des Peres, Missouri, Scott is a self-taught winemaker, having learned by doing, reading, and attending extension service courses on viticulture and enology offered by U.C. Davis, Oregon State University, and Chemeketa Community College, and by participating in the Willamette Valley’s Westside Winemakers Club for a number of years. Scott serves on the board of Oregon Pinot Camp. Previously, he has served as a board member of Gov. Ted Kulongoski’s Brand Oregon campaign; was a founding director of the Oregon Wine Board; and is president emeritus of the Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers Association.

   

Annie Shull
Proprietor, Director of National Sales, Marketing and Distribution

Annie joined Scott as his life partner in 1998 and as his business partner in 2001. This Minnesota native is very active throughout the Oregon wine industry. Her background in curriculum development for sales teams has proven a great segue to the role of distribution sales management and PR. The bulk of her time is now spent traveling extensively throughout the United States to personally represent Raptor Ridge. Annie is president emeritus of Oregon Pinot Camp, and served as a director for nine years, contributing to review and revision of curriculum. Annie also served on the iSalud! steering committee, and currently chairs the Industry/Community Collaboration subcommittee for the Willamette Valley Wineries Association. When she’s home, Annie enjoys endurance running, practicing yoga and meditation, and trying to keep up with Scott and a bouncy Labrador Retriever.

   

Kevin Wiles

Assistant Winemaker and Distribution Partner

Many wine industry professionals who attend Oregon Pinot Camp jokingly say they're going to pack up and move here after their experience at this trade-only event in late June. For West Virginia native Kevin Wiles, it was more than an idle threat. Invited to Pinot Camp in 2005 as a top seller of Oregon brands, Kevin had been running a retail wine shop in Hilton Head, South Carolina for three years. Prior to that, he soaked up as much wine knowledge as he could working for a French importer and as a bar and restaurant manager on Hilton Head Island. Invited to work harvest in 2006 for R. Stuart & Company, he made himself indispensible and quickly earned the title of assistant winemaker. His move to Raptor Ridge came in the summer of 2008, when he joined our winemaking team and worked his way up from harvest hand to cellar master to assistant winemaker. Kevin’s meticulous attention to detail and tireless passion for hard work have proven the perfect balance for Scott’s winemaking team. Kevin has also earned the respect of our southeast distribution partners by hitting the road when he's not in the cellar, and coaching our feet-on-the street sales teams as a proud ambassador of the Raptor Ridge cellar. In what remains of Kevin’s spare time, he enjoys golfing, cooking, exploring Oregon, and rooting for his alma mater in football: West Virginia University!

   

Jonathan Ziemba
Hospitality and Direct Sales Manager

A native of Houston, TX, Jonathan moved to Oregon in 2015 from Chicago, IL, where his interest in wine and wine regions began. Leaving graduate school at the University of Chicago, he started work at two small wine shops, and eventually served as sommelier at Grace Restaurant, where he helped the restaurant earn three Michelin Stars in the 2014 Guide. Jonathan was introduced to the world of wine through Hugh Johnson’s “World Atlas of Wine,” and enjoys the way geography and single vineyards affect the wine we drink. He brings a passion for service and hospitality to the Raptor Ridge team. He has taken to the Oregon outdoors, hiking with his wife, Annie, and spends his free time cooking, reading art history, and studying maps.
