We are fueled by the possibility of discovering something new. It’s in our heritage, and in our DNA. We are here to make wine our way: without compromise. To create something exceptional.
When Arpad came across the coffee table book, Fatal Harvest: The Tragedy of Industrial Agriculture, it literally changed his life.
After briefly considering a long-line swordfishing career in his home state of Maine, Michael headed west to California, where restaurant work piqued his interest in winemaking.
Peter began his adventures in wine as a teenager, suckering and tying vines and driving irrigation tractors during summers in the vineyard where his father grew grapes for Napa Valley wineries.
For Alex Beloz, a college apprenticeship in Siena, Italy was the beginning of a love affair with wine culture that persists to the current day.
My great-grandfather played minor league baseball in the Pacific Coast League. My grandfather played football for USC, Army and the first pro football team on the West Coast. Me? I crushed it in little league.
I make mental notes about my customers. I apply their stories to my other passion in life, which is writing. Look, it's working! I'm writing about it right now. And you're reading what I'm writing. Look at us go!
I have an overdeveloped ability to nickname my family's outfits. Examples? Comfortable Sea Monster, Detective in a Mid-sized City, Custom Cabinets, Janice.
Tasting Room Manager
Growing up in small-town Texas, my procurement of wine had beginnings in beer barns and tailgates. I’ve since graduated to much finer product—though you’ll still find me drinking champagne in a solo cup at a football tailgate!
Regional Sales Manager
Everyone calls me “Guapo” (handsome).
I'm a cellar worker. I'm the assistant to the assistant of the assistant. I top barrels, rack wines and fill barrels. My favorite part of the job is during harvest, when I prepare yeast for fermentation.

Marketing & Regional Sales Manager
As a descendant of Catholic, Jewish and Muslim grandparents, I embody the American melting pot. I also serve a diverse community as a doula and childbirth educator. Wine and babies pair well!
Accounts Receivable & Sales Support
I like to change lyrics to popular songs and sing them to my Pomeranian, Ginger. Like “Sweet Ginger-Pie” to the tune of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” and “Ginger Gee” based on Grease’s “Sandra Dee.”
Wine Club Manager
My brother worked in a winery and would bring wine home. Sometimes I would steal a bottle to share with my friends. We didn’t like the taste of wine, so we would mix it with soda. I’ve come a long way.
I love my Pitbull Lillian and fine art in the form of tattoos.
Accounting & Sales Associate
I spent part of my childhood running around on my great-grandparent’s vineyard; you could say wine is in my blood!
