Rob, the second of Brian’s four boys, grew up in Healdsburg on the family ranch in Dry Creek Valley and was immersed from a very early age in the rhythms of growing great winegrapes. Rob spent his childhood exploring the valley and enjoying the comraderie within the small schools within Healdsburg. After high school, he was active in the community, serving on the Geyserville Volunteer Fire Department before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps. He earned a BS in Business Administration from CSU, Chico
Rob has had the unique opportunity to travel and work overseas, living in both the Philippines and the UK. While living in Europe, he spent a lot of time in France, where he gained a deep appreciation for the art of blending varietals and experienced exceptional wines that catalyzed a dream to make wine from the family’s vineyard.
