Claus “Dutch” Mann

Feb 29, 1924 – Mar 25, 2017


Unfortunately we lost our friend Dutch on March 25, 2017. He was our vineyard pruner and resident artist, carving his folk art on the barrel heads for over 20 years. He was a WWII veteran, retired school principal and a very dear friend of ours. He was a Beachaven celebrity, meeting and greeting customers while he hand-carved the barrels. He never met a stranger and loved sharing experiences with people, especially other retired military. He will always hold a special place in our hearts and we miss him dearly. 

Our Beachaven Cuvée French Method Champagne label boasts one of his artwork pieces. This Tennessee Cuvée is sourced from the Beachaven property and select growers around our state. A premier bottle fermented sparkling wine produced in the traditional French Method.
