Ben Pickering is our assistant winemaker. He was born and raised in Sonoma where he has worked for several wineries. Ben loves to cook and when he came for his initial interview, due to a misunderstanding, had to wait for over 3 hours. Ben said he didn't mind the wait, he spent the entire time at an Indian spice shop in Santa Rosa stocking up his spice pantry. Very easy going and always wanting to share a joke with you, Ben makes daily life in the winery fun.
