Mark Herold

Winemaker, Celani Family Vineyards

Winemaker, Mark Herold

After completing my academic career at the University of Davis with a Ph.D. in Ecology with an emphasis in nutritional biochemistry, I started my first foray into the wine world at Joseph Phelps Vineyards as their Research Enologist.

Merus was my first personal project. It was a labor of love that I made in my garage in downtown Napa. That first vintage was extremely challenging weather-wise, and on top of that I had limited access to equipment. Despite all of the challenges, the 1998 Merus received 93 points from Robert Parker. Soon after releasing Merus, I started my consulting business with a client list that has included Hestan, Kamen, Harris, Buccella, Kobalt, Celani Family Vineyards, Maze and The Vineyardist.

Country born: United States

Education: PhD from U.C. Davis

Years in the wine industry: 15-20 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
My philosophy it to utilize what I learned through my research at Phelps. I try to bridge the scientific method with winemaking to determine the best approach for making wines of quality and balance.
