Meet The Cellar Crew – Gilberto Garcia

No Gravatar

Over the next few weeks I’m going to be highlighting our cellar crew.  These highly skilled behind-the-scenes workaholics keep production moving along, and make it look effortless.  Most of their time is spent doing work in the caves and the warehouse.  So I thought it was overdue getting them some face time.  Keep up the good work fellas!

This is Gilberto Garcia.  He is head of the cellar crew and has been with Montelena since 1989!  Gil’s an avid runner and may have zipped by you when hiking up Mt. Saint Helena.  He has a pan of roasted pork in one hand, and a glass of Montelena in the other.  Gil is always multitasking.  What, other than partying, is your favorite thing to do while drinking some wine?
