My first harvest with Cristom was in 1996. I met Paul Gerrie at the coffee shop I used to manage in McMinnville. We bonded over a shared love for sports and dogs.
After working as a harvest intern I became Assistant Winemaker. Even after sixteen years at Cristom, I’m still excited. I love chatting with visitors to the winery and like to point out the songbirds or hawks circling above the vineyards. I am very proud of the great Cristom wines we produce every year.
