Winemaker, Girard Winery
After working at various smaller production facilities I joined Girard as an intern. I've worked my way up from that part time opportunity to every position in the winery and ultimately became the winemaker in 2011.
Country born: United States
Education: My winemaking experience is concentrated in Napa Valley and includes early assignments with Provenance Vineyards, where I learned from Napa legend Tom Rinaldi, and hands-on experience at Sedna Winery and FleuryWinery. As the General Manager of The Bounty Hunter Wine Bar in downtown Napa, I soon met Marco DiGiulio and continued my dream at Girard.
Years in the wine industry: 20-30 years
My philosophy is simple: wine is to be shared with friends and family; it is a living and breathing expression that constantly evolves and instills memories. With this in mind, my focus is to find balance in wine with fruit, acid and tannin. I think of wine as part of the dining table and hope to always make wines that can be enjoyed with food.
