Whitney grew up in Paradise, CA while her father, Mike (co-winemaker), ran a small construction company. The oldest of Mike and Lynn’s two daughters, she spent many weekends on the family ranch, being taught about wine and the vines. Learning early about the family’s zeal for hard work, she has become a major presence in the winery, coordinating all aspects of the winemaking as well as overseeing the vineyard operations.
Whitney became co-winemaker in 2008 and is currently studying enology through the UC Davis Online Studies to receive her Winemaking Certificate. Along with running the winery, she is in charge of managing our small vineyard crew.
Whitney is part of VitWomen which is a group of women in the vineyard industry. She is also a member of Next Generation of Wine which is a group of fellow 2nd generation family wine members.
Whitney is the proud mother of her daughter Hannah and loves nothing more than a good glass of red wine.
