He began in the cellar and lab as an intern at Cuvaison Estate Wines, eventually assuming the role of associate winemaker and working with a number of smaller producers in custom production and consulting, from the vineyard through to sales. He now serves as winemaker for Fairwinds Estate Winery and Valley Floor Vineyard.

Winemaking Philosophy:
We are proud to make limited production, hand crafted wines at Fairwinds Estate Winery. There's a seasonality to the winemaking process and also the elegant craft of making wine that makes it enjoyable. The artisanship from the beginning to the end and all of the quality control along the way is extremely rewarding and important. By making sure that wines are evolving and developing well during the process, we can help ensure a fabulous result.
