Winemaker, Leaf And Vine
I moved to Napa in 2000 to pursue my education, and eventually found myself at UC Davis obtaining my degree in Viticulture and Enology.
Country born: United States
Education: My mentor was Jay Heminway. He farms his land, he makes his wine, and has done so for 40 years. My brief time spent making wine with him in 2007 has helped shape my goals.
Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years
We make our wines with a focus of minimal intervention. They're natively fermented and bottled unfiltered. Our ultimate goal is to make sure that what is in that bottle is strictly fermented grapes.
