Winemaker, Burgess Cellars
I fell into winemaking by accident, and what a happy accident it has become! As a winemaker, I've been fortunate to work with some of the best fruit in the valley ranging from the beautiful hillsides of Howell Mountain to the fabulous valley floor vines in Rutherford and beyond. I've had the pleasure of working with some of the finest winemakers that have helped shape and form my winemaking philosophies and techniques. I love the challenge that each vintage brings, and taking what Mother Natures gives us to create elegant, world-renowned wines.
