Winemaking Team

Unbeaten Path

First Generation Californian, Winemaker Jose Ramirez’ plans to study medicine took a sharp detour when he found his true calling during a college harvest internship.  With a vineyard-driven approach to winemaking, José is engaged in all aspects of winemaking, from the vineyards to the cellar.  In his time away from the cellar, Jose can be hiking along Monterey Coast trails or crushing it at Olympic-style weightlifting.

Global Explorer

Winemaker Christophe “Cris” Legrandjacques was born in Champagne, raised in Africa, and trained as a winemaker in Burgundy and Bordeaux.  Ever the explorer, his travels brought him to the U.S. to make wine in Washington and California.  When he’s not making wine, he makes (and eats) chocolate, skis in the mountains and is an avid yoga practitioner.
