Brianne Day is the winemaker and owner of Day Wines, and the owner and manager of Day Camp, a shared winery in Dundee, OR opening in late 2016. Brianne, a native of the Pacific Northwest, became interested in "old school" winemaking while traveling in Europe and learned to make wine from mentors who honed this philosophy in Oregon.

Prior to launching Day Wines, Brianne gained background in the industry from multiple perspectives. She worked with wineries The Eyrie Vineyards, Brooks Winery, Grochau Cellars, Belle Pente and Scott Paul, and worked harvests in New Zealand, Argentina and France. She gained wine sales and restaurant experience while working at Portland's Le Pigeon and Little Bird Bistro, and during a five-year internship at Storyteller Wine Company. She also sold barrels for a Bordeaux cooperage, Saury, which provided many opportunities to listen and learn from winemakers throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Day Camp, will be the collective winery for ten small producers: Jackalope Wine Cellars, Fossil & Fawn, Script Cellars, Adega Northwest, Granville Wines, Burner Wines, Montebruno Wine, William Marie Wines, R. Maloof, and Yamtunk Wine Company.
