Winemaker, Coup De Foudre Winery
I was born in southern Louisiana, where my grandfather owned a wine distribution company. The culinary aspects of the area, and the fine wines introduced by my grandfather inspired me to pursue a winemaking career.
Country born: United States
Education: I graduated from U.C. Davis with a Viticulture and Enology degree and interned at J. Wine Company and Spring Mountain Vineyards. I then worked at Duckhorn Wine Company for five years.
Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years
For the past 20 years, we have had the great fortune and honor to work with wine, savor it and witness its impact on consumers as they navigate the wonders of wine and the sheer pleasure that it brings.
