Chapter 24 Vineyards - Willamette Valley, OR

Mark Tarlov began his involvement with Oregon Pinot Noir in 2007 when he formed Evening Land Vineyards and leased Oregon’s Seven Springs Vineyard. Leaving Evening Land after the harvest in 2010, Mark started Chapter 24 Vineyards in July of 2012 and now collaborates with winemaker Mike D. Etzel and Consulting Winemaker Louis Michel Liger-Belair. Drawing on organically grown fruit from 12 vineyards in 5 Willamette Valley AVA’s, Chapter 24 produced 100 barrels of Pinot Noir in 2012 as well as 5,000 cases that will be marketed under the Two Messengers label.

Prior to starting Evening Land, Mark produced and/or directed over 20 feature films, including “Christine” based on the novel by Stephen King (his first film), “Copy Cat” starring Sigourney Weaver, Holly Hunter and Harry Connick Jr. and “Simply Irresistible” with Sarah Michelle Gellar. He is currently preparing a new film, “Lost in the Stars”, which will start production in the Spring of 2014. Before striking off on his own Mark worked at Warner Bros. in New York and Los Angeles. Mark had come to Warner Bros. directly from a 3 year term as a Special Assistant United States Attorney in the Antitrust Division of the US Department of Justice.  Prior to law school, he worked for two years in the office of Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court Warren Burger writing speeches and articles among his various duties.
