Growing up on a farm in Walla Walla, Washington, Anne developed a deep appreciation for agriculture from her father, and inherited his love of wine. He introduced her to wine through tastings of Leonetti, L’Ecole No. 41, and other wines from that region. He also inspired her to reconsider a career in dentistry and enroll in UC’s enology program.
After graduating from UC Davis with a Bachelor’s Degree in Enology and Viticulture, she worked for wineries in Washington, California and Chile before settling in Napa. Anne recognizes that her experience at UC Davis provided the scientific base to develop a sound winemaking and viticultural philosophy.
In Napa, Anne was honored to work as assistant to Heidi Barrett at Paradigm winery. Heidi’s mentorship proved invaluable to Anne’s growth as a winemaker and helped craft her winemaking style. It was a time of intense learning and growth which gave her the knowledge and courage to launch her winemaking consultancy. Anne’s winemaking clients have included Ziata Wines, Oakville Ranch Vineyards and Teaderman Vineyards.
