About me

Gender Male
Occupation winemaker, viticulture, certified sommelier, chef
Location Kelseyville, Lake County, California, United States
Introduction Involved in all aspects or enology, viticulture and marketing at Rosa d'Oro Vineyards. I have years in kitchens and am starting to revisit that part in Rosa d'Oro's tasting room in Kelseyville. Am a certified sommelier as well though not working in that capacity specifically. I do attend professional tastings, and am involved in many other wine projects (competitions, roundtables, events, etc.) as well. Went to school for philosophy, and that is certainly in all this somewhere too...
