Winemaker, Ronald Vuylsteke

The Tudal family continues to produce Arnold Tudal's signature cult classic, the Tudal Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, but have since added a variety of wonderful blends which include our award winning Tractor Shed Red, and the 30th anniversary Legacy Lot 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our expert winemaker Ron Vuylsteke grew up surrounded by berry bushes on his family farm in Hillsboro Oregon. In 1969, the family turned a bumper crop of blackberries into wine. Then rasberries, boysenberries, gooseberries followed.

In 1984 he moved to Calistoga to "broaden his horizons" and began working for several local wineries, and finally settled in with Tudal in 1997. Since then, he has been responsible for gold medals on every Cabernet we've crafted since the mid 90's.

Now nearing 18 years at the winery, his intimate understanding of the vines and the production of wine allow him to produce an entire suite of world class wines.

Country born: US


Years in the wine industry: 20-30 years
