Winemaker, Signorello Estate
Pierre is a sixth-generation wine grower. Growing up in Corsica, France, Pierre spent his early years among the vines learning the trade from family. After graduating from the Agriculture College of Carcassone and Macon with a degree in Viticulture and Enology, Pierre returned to his family's vineyards as vineyard manager and assistant winemaker.
Pierre soon decided to travel to California to experience a new region and style of winemaking. Over the next several years he practiced vineyard management and development, grafting and winemaking at several properties in Napa Valley.
