Kurt grew up in Sunnyvale, CA and went on to UC Davis to get my B.S. degree in Viticulture and Enology. My winemaking career started at Mumm Napa and Domaine Chandon where I grew a love for sparkling wines. My still wine career began at Newton Vineyard working with Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon from across the valley.
I joined the winemaking team at Robert Mondavi Winery in 2015 and worked up to Senior Winemaker. During my time, I have worked on all the varieties in the Robert Mondavi portfolio.
It continues to be an amazing experience working at this historic winery and having To Kalon Vineyard in our backyard.
