Bill is now working on his “Final Roll Call” in life after leaving a 30-year career in Silicon Valley. In pursuit of a more hands-on experience, he and his wife Chris have contributed to many harvests over the years, including in Minnesota (where he brought grapes from California and also made wine from cold-hardy fruit from the University of Minnesota at a local winery), as well as Napa Valley and South Africa. His style is more about rolling up his sleeves and being intimately involved with every step of the process, from vineyard sourcing and hands-on berry sorting to the myriad details of winemaking, sensory analysis, and the infinitely nuanced art and science of blending. His goal is to make age-worthy guilt-free daily drinking wines and his wines tend to be European in style.
