A Visit With Dave Vella

No Gravatar

Last week,  Vineyard Manager Dave Vella hosted Viticulture student Lynn Pedone for an educational visit, tour and tasting at the winery.  If you’ve ever met Dave, you know what a hilarious and engaging personality he has – it’s no surprise that he was the highlight of Lynn’s visit.  He’s also incredibly knowledgeable about our unique land at Montelena as he’s been managing the vineyard activities since 1985.  To learn more about Lynn’s visit with Dave, read her full blog post at The Grape Grower.
