Riley Mason

Riley is our Vineyard manager and Winemaker. He has always had a love for nature and he graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2014 with a Bachelors of Science in Horticulture. He learned our trade by living and working on a small farm winery in Altus, Arkansas. The owner of Chateau aux Arc, Audrey House, acted as a mentor to Riley. She shared with him her love of winegrowing and gave him in depth knowledge and hands on practice in viticulture and enology. We hired Riley in November of 2016 to oversee and care for our wines and vines.

 





Doug and Sheree Meyer

Doug and Sheree founded Rusty Tractor Vineyards because of their love of wine, farming, and nature.  

Doug grew up working on his family farm and enjoyed seeing the fruits of his labor.  After moving to Little Rock he owned and managed Capital Ford New Holland from 1987-2008.  For 25 years he has been a driving force in helping develop the Little Rock landscape through his company, Terraforma, LLC.  Doug is on the Board of Directors Little Rock Downtown Partnership and Metrocentre.

Sheree is a Little Rock native and has a unique talent for design, which was seen during her 12 years owning Tropical Galleries and now again with Sunset Lodge at Rusty Tractor Vineyards.  She conceptualized many weddings, rehearsal dinners and charity events.  These visions have manifest themselves in Sunset Lodge, and you will see them come alive for your wedding or event.  Real estate sales, retail, and her love for nature and nurture round out her talents.
