Consulting: Over the years Charles has worked in both Napa and Sonoma Counties, gaining hands on experience in all aspects of winemaking. He has built a strong reputation for the passion of excellence throughout the industry. As a consulting winemaker for many exclusive wineries over the years, such as Viader, Barnett Vineyards, Paoletti Vineyards, Regusci Winery, and Tamayo family Vineyard, Charles has had the great fortune to develop relationships with some of the foremost producers in the industry. Philosophy: This truly defines Charles’ philosophy of winemaking. Charles sees himself as an assistant to the natural bounty of the vineyards, using his knowledge and experience to guide and coax the very best from the wine grapes. Charles believes in minimal intervention in the wine cellar, but knows that if we leave nature completely on it's own, we would be in the vinegar business!
