Winemaker, Luna Vineyards
Traveled to work harvest abroad, always returning to Napa Valley. I have been at Luna for 9 years, previously working at Moone Tsai, Rombauer and Bealieu Vineyards in the Napa Valley.
Country born: United States
Education: Foreign study in New Zealand and Australia. UC Davis Extension Winemaking Certificate. My most influential mentors in California have been Philippe Melka and Tom Peterson.
Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years
I aim to make food friendly wines that are elegant, yet powerful and ageable. I prefer minimal intervention to allow the vineyards to show their individual characteristics.
