Head Winemaker                                                                                                                 
Even though I have had the privilege of working in Chile and in France,Viu Manent and Cheval Blanc respectively, I am an Adelaida boy through and through. I met previous winemaker Steve Glossner in 2000 and knew he should be my mentor. After all he crafted the 1994 Justin Isosceles, which won the prestigious Comtess de Lalonde trophy. Thankfully he felt the same and took me under his wing.
Over the years working at Adelaida Cellars, Halter Ranch, Redhead Ranch, Orchid Hill,Whalebone, and Stanger Vineyards prepped me to take over at Kiamie. It's a unique area and I have been fortunate to work with some of the best vineyards in the Paso Robles AVA for the last 16 years. I feel like I am really hitting my winemaking stride and have more than enjoyed the journey.
