While I have previously been a commercial orchid grower, landscaper, and engineering contractor in my career, growing grapes and making wine has always been my passion since I was first introduced to fine wines in college. In college, I worked as a line cook at a high-end French restaurant. There, I quickly fell in love with fine wines after tasting Petrus on my 21st birthday (got to love the French). After that moment, I began searching for California wines that could rival high-end French wines. In 1995, my pursuit to find these wines eventually led me to become a at home winemaker. By 1997, I began my formal training at UC Davis so that I could begin making the type of wines that I had been searching for.
After graduating from UC Davis in 2000, I eventually went on to start my own winery. My continual pursuit to create California wines that rival French wines eventually led me to G V Cellars because of their unique growing region in Solano County/Green Valley. This particular AVA has plenty to offer and I am excited to share my passion with you.
