GLENNS FERRY -- In 2001, Roger Jones, owner of Carmela Vineyards, lost his multi-million dollar potato processing plants, which employed 360 people.

The bank called in a $17 million note that Jones didn't have. He started selling off everything he owned -- a plane, large ranch, homes, land, everything.

Then, he lost the love of his life. His wife Nancy died after a long battle with cancer.

The one thing Roger did not lose is Carmela Vineyards.

Watch the video above to find out more about Roger Jones and how he survived incredible tragedy, and became a successful vitner.
