Corey Schuster, a former civil engineer, began his journey in the wine industry working for a family-owned winery near Salem, Oregon. He found harvest work very gratifying and was hooked. In 2004, he quit his job, acquired a jackalope tattoo on his right shoulder and set out traveling and learning more about wine. In 2012, Jackalope Wine Cellars was launched. The jackalope is a mythical creature of North America that is a cross between a jackrabbit and antelope.
