Hometown: San Jose, CA
At Testarossa since: July 2012
Why the wine industry? Grew up in the industry with family members being heavily involved in winemaking. As a kid I was always walking around wineries and helping out with sorting fruit, stomping on grapes, filling barrels, you know the fun stuff!
Favorite meal? Any type of roasted veggies with a caramelized reduction sauce. As long as that is the base there is a lot of meals to be made form that.
Little known fact about you: Even though I went to school in San Jose, I spent a lot of my time in the Sierra Nevada Foothills raising large farm animals like cattle, pigs, goats, horses, and chickens.
You love: My Wife Amanda and Daughter Madison.
Hidden talent: I can play the Bass guitar.
Favorite wine/varietal: When I’m not enjoying Testarossa wines, I have not had a white Macon (Chardonnay) that I haven’t enjoyed.
Best Quote: “Coming in hot!”
