industry. His family was among the early California grape
growers back in the 1920’s. They started off growing table grapes,
grapes for making raisins and ultimately converted to producing grapes
for the wine industry. Alan was taught, at an early age, the family

with nearly every aspect of running the vineyards right down to
harvesting the fruit and delivering it to the winery.
In addition to his
own commercial grape growing experience, Alan also has close family
members who currently own and manage hundreds of acres of vineyard land.
