Tony Markward Career
Tony, along with Todd and Frank, is a co-founder of Silas Wines. While visiting Calliope Vineyard in 2005 to select some grapes, lawyer Todd and software guru Frank ended up purchasing a 3-acre altitude micro-farm planted in 1985 in the primeval foothills of Mt. Hood. In honor of the typical Oregon woodland surrounding the vineyard, they named their hobby wine label “Silas,” which translates as “Man of the Woods.”
Markward’s great-grandpa, a merchant in Dubuque, Iowa, who created wine out of whatever fermented in his garden, was the person who first exposed him to the beverage.
Afterward, Markward worked for a food and beverage company, where he invested in a coffee company and prepped part-time in a restaurant kitchen.
