Q: How many years have you worked at Gainey? A: In September it will be 9-years.
Q: How did you get into winemaking? A: When I was 18, I found out I was going to be a father and needed a job. I was living on the central coast at the time and my dad suggested I get a job in the local wine industry. In 1997, I had my first job at Fess Parker Winery. It was sometime in my second year that I caught the winemaking bug. I discovered I had aptitude for and passion for it. I can so clearly remember the day I came to realize that winemaking was what I wanted to do with my life. Almost twenty years later I am still pleased with that decision.
