The Steeles’ Story

The two founders and winemakers of Cowhorn Vineyard & Garden have committed their time to build industry collaboration and educate consumers through Oregon Wine University®.

Generosity Educates

Their generosity impacts the lives of our youngest patients, through Asante Children’s Miracle Network, providing tremendous support for the NICU and pediatrics department.

When becoming involved with the Oregon Wine Experience® and Asante Foundation, the Steeles took an approach aligned with their core values of education and community and their passion for helping the vulnerable.

It’s fitting that the owners of the first Biodynamic® winery in the region and the first Living Building Challenge certified tasting room in the world have become partners with Asante in building a more sustainable, healthy and informed future for our region, from the ground up.

“Asante is making a difference in our community. Why wouldn’t we support that?”

— Bill Steele

“There is incredible power in doing good. The golden rule should be more than a rule – it should be a purpose.”

—Gene Pelham, Rogue Credit Union
