Bertony Faustin

A Local Story Conversation


For me, what's more important about being the first is making sure I'm not the last.

Local Story Conversation with Bertony Faustin, Oregon’s first Black winemaker and owner of Abbey Creek Vineyard in Washington County. This live conversation took place on February 22, 2018 while Five Oaks Museum was known by its former name, Washington County Museum.

Original event description:

Celebrate Black History Month with a Local Story event and film screening by Bertony Faustin at the Abbey Creek Vineyard, Oregon’s first black-owned winery. Bertony talks about his life and passion for wine making before hosting a special screening of his documentary, “Red, White and Black”, about minority winemakers in the state. Read about the film and check out the trailer.
