Winemaker, Ralph Hertelendy

Ralph Hertelendy is a young entrepreneur who fell in love with wine at a very early age. When Ralph was 5 years old in France, he tasted one of the best French Grand Crus, and remembered liking it not just for the flavor, but also because it brought friends and family together. After getting his business degree from the University of San Francisco, Ralph became a sommelier and worked for several wineries in the Napa Valley in sales, and as a winemaker's assistant under Laura Barrett.

When he was 25, he made his first wine in his basement, and over the years he has refined his craft towards creating only top quality style wines. Being multilingual, he has lived and traveled in France, Italy, and Spain to go on wine explorations in specific regions to further hone his craft and broaden his horizons.
