Winemaker, Abigail Horstman

A Bay Area native and UC Davis enology and viticulture graduate, Abigail “Abi” Horstman didn't travel far from her roots to TEXTBOOK Vineyards in the Napa Valley. Still, the path to get there took Abi around the world for harvests in four different countries, including Italy, New Zealand, and Israel, where she was exposed to a wide range of climates, vineyards, varietals, and winemaking techniques.

As Winemaker at TEXTBOOK Vineyards, Abi is in a unique position to leverage her aptitude for innovation and experimentation with new techniques in the cellar. Her holistic knowledge of Napa Valley’s coveted vineyard sites brings a valuable perspective to winemaking as she works alongside TEXTBOOK founder and wine industry veteran, Jonathan Pey.

Country born: United States

Education: My mentor is Winemaker Kimberlee Nicholls. She hired me for my first full-time job in the wine industry, as the Enologist at Markham Vineyards. Her friendship, mentorship, and empowerment has made shaped me as a winemaker.

TEXTBOOK Founder, Jonathan Pey and I work closely in crafting these small lots. His insights shaped by the trials and triumphs of founding TEXTBOOK have been invaluable in how we craft each vintage.

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
TEXTBOOK wines are designed to capture the soul of the varietal – expressing the unique, identifiable qualities of the fruit, soil, and climate. We accomplish this by seeking out the best of the region, integrating these lots for balance.
