Davis, Mia worked her way up from the cellar, starting on the night shift at Chappellet under the tutelage of Cathy Corison, before moving on to Robert Pepi Winery. She then left the world of regular employment to work with Tony Soter as a consulting winemaker for Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery, Araujo and Viader. Later, Mia won acclaim as winemaker for Dalla Valle Vineyards. Mia now makes wine for her own small label, Selene,and three small, super-premium producers, including Bressler Vineyards.
