We are a small but fierce team.
The winery is owned and managed by Lorraine Paskett, who was raised in Lodi on the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard that is the centerpiece of the winery. Lorraine's dad, Herb Paskett, provides strategic advice for farming, winemaking and varietal selection. He has been farming their Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard and other crops for nearly 50 years.
Our winemaker is Heather Pyle and she brings with her decades of winemaking experience in Napa and Lodi, a love of winemaking and farming, unwavering patience, and a spirit to Lodi like no one else can.
Our tasting room manager spent the beginning of her career as a 7th grade English teacher in the Midwest before finding her passion for wine in 1999. After moving to California in 2008, Stacey decided to change her direction and has been sharing her love of Lodi wines with everyone she meets ever since.
Last, but certainly not least, is our vineyard manager Mark Mayer who comes from generations of Lodi farmers. He carefully tends our vineyards, hand picks our fruit each year, watches over our grapes like they are his children, and puts up with Lorraine's and Heather's farming requests! We are also blessed to have wonderful creative team members who helps us showcase our exclusive wines.
