Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

We create award-winning boutique wines in small lots. We’ve always had an interest in wine and how it’s made, so I guess it found us. A good friend mentioned he wanted to start making beer, and I replied with, “Great, I’ll do wine…and you do beer?” And the rest is history (still in the making).

What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?

My first job was being a busboy at J’s Coffee Shop in Kettleman City. I learned that sometimes, even if it’s not your mess, you have to clean it up.

How are you involved with both the community and your customer?

We enjoy supporting local organizations, such as Rocklin Educational Excellence Foundation (REEF), by providing wine donations for silent auctions during Rocklin’s Toast of the Town and other charity events. We are also really involved in our children’s school.

What life accomplishments are you most proud of?

The three kids we’re raising (one has flown the coop, but there are two more little ones), the close family structure we’ve built and the wine we produce.

Where do you go when the going gets tough?

I go for a bicycle ride down the American River Bike Trail. It clears the mind and sharpens the senses.

Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?

When we’re not out camping, we go to a friend’s house and fire up the grill, or we entertain at our house.

What’s your favorite childhood memory?

Taking in the aromas of my grandmother’s cooking while playing in the backyard.

And finally, customer service is…?

Listening to your customers and making their experience the best it can be.
