Our Team

Small in size, big in spirit

Two Shepherds is the labor of passion founded by William Allen, well known Rhône enthusiast and former wine  blogger.  William was a garagiste for years before moving into commercial production in 2010.

Two Shepherds started as a one-person micro winery in 2010. In 2015, William was joined by his partner Karen Daenen, a wine industry veteran, and head of consumer research for a multi-brand winery, as they moved into their own production facility in Windsor.

William focuses on day-to-day wine making while Karen, the Chief Shepherdess, runs foot stomping, blending trials, marketing, accounting, design and other key elements to the business.
