Winemaker, Tuck Beckstoffer Estate
Born and raised in France, I graduated in 1995 from Ecole Superieure d'agriculture de Purpan (ESAP) with a masters in agricultural sciences.
Having discovered and enjoyed a lot the Californian wine industry while doing an internship in Alexander Valley during my college years, I came back for another harvest at Newton Vineyard in 1997. Following, I had tenures at Far Niente and Duckhorn Vineyards. My career path then brought me as assistant winemaker at Plumpjack and Cade wineries.
I took my first full time winemaker job at Martin Estate in 2008. I started consulting for Clark Claudon in 2009. Since then I added Tamber Bey and Tuck Beckstoffer Wines to my portofolio.
