Winemaker, Julianne Laks

I started college studying chemistry, then when my family moved to the Napa Valley and I fell in love with the wine industry. My father worked as a winery engineer for Robert Mondavi Winery, and he enlightened me with winery design and layout for energy conservation. I was fortunate to work with Myron Nightingale, where I learned the fine art of blending.

Country born: United States

Education: BS in Fermentation Science UCD; worked alongside Myron Nightingale with great appreciation for his sensory skills and humorous view of life; I briefly got to know Andre Tschelicheff while working at Beaulieu Vineyard and admired his passion for great wine and his intimate knowledge of the vineyards.

Years in the wine industry: 30+ years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Showcase the best fruit in Napa Valley, and don't cover it up. Let the vineyard speak through the wine.
