Began to learn the basics at a very young age. He has had the privilege of working with some of the leaders in the industry along with some of the best vineyard management companies in the Napa Valley. During his career, he has been responsible for over 2000 acres of prime wine country vineyard and developed over 1,000 acres.

He has acquired a perspective that many rarely obtain by working in the vineyards most of his life. His ability to engage and interact with his team as a worker places him at an advantage. Like Guillermo always says “To be the leader of your pack you need to be able to do the work yourself. Only then can you be a good teacher and only then will you have a good team.”


Began farming in the Napa Valley in the early 1970’s. Through many field trials, he originated and perfected many viticulture techniques, giving him the ability to farm high quality grapes for the past 35 years. He has managed many properties and has worked side by side with some of the best in the world. He is recognized, by many, as a master in the art of grafting, planting, and canopy management.
