A Gust of Sun Winery
A Gust of Sun Winery's name is more than a lovely turn of phrase. It's also a nod to the name of its founders, Erik and Shane Gustafson, a couple whose love for each other bloomed on the latticework of a shared love of wine. It all started when Shane took a wine appreciation class at their alma mater, Purdue, and convinced her new beau to follow suit. Erik became an oenophile too, and when they married they relocated from Indiana to his native western New York, where grapes flourish.
The duo tilled and sowed the land themselves, literally building their orchard from the ground up. From there, they added some sunny, sophisticated indoor lounges and tasting rooms. In August 2011, they opened their doors and started cracking open bottles of the seven wines they had created at the time. Since then, a Gust of Sun Winery has continued to fill glasses as well as schedules, arranging events, workshops, and tasting parties with the same dedication they pour into the creation of new wines.
