I didn't know a damn thing about wine when I first started, but I did know that women loved wine...ok but seriously there is more to it.
I started back in 2010 sellin some juice for a friend and helped their wine label grow, had some fun, learned some tricks and eventually found myself bartending in Sacramento and slingin wine half the time.
A chance phone call from the past and I moved to San Francisco to help start a new wine brand we called Rebel Coast Winery. A ridiculous 5 year stretch of shenanigans and tons of fun it was time for me to move on which led me to leaving in the fall of 2017...usually how partnerships go, it had to end.
That fall I moved to our family ranch and started my cattle business DD Cattle Co. This brought me down to Paso Robles where a chance encounter with some pretty cool guys (Cal Coast Beer Co.) opened the door to re-start my wine dream.
In 2018 Iron Oaks Winery was born, you'll have to get the rest of the story from me in the tasting room. Right now I'm gettin mighty thirsty. Cheers.
