Employee Spotlight: Javier Guzman

Meet Javier Guzman, our Cellar Master at Gainey Vineyard. We are so thankful for all the hard work and dedication throughout the 18-years he's been with us.

He says he loves everything about his job, but he especially enjoys harvest time because he likes sorting grapes, pressing grapes, and racking wines. He loves how patient you have to be when making wines and that he’s really “passionate about making great wine.”

His favorite Gainey wine is our Pinot Noir.

When he is not working, he enjoys going to our local beaches with his family. If he has to choose his top meal, it would be a sirloin steak. The holiday he looks forward to the most is the 4th of July.

When the pandemic is over, Javier can’t wait to go to Guadalajara, Mexico to visit family.
