“Donna and Mark’s passionate commitment to crafting the finest single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon possible has become an inspiration to discerning wine lovers. Being asked to join them on this journey is such an honor. I relish the opportunity to help share their story and their wines with our enduring advocates and new friends alike.”
As a Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers and a Level 3 Certification holder in wine from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, Julia has truly followed her passion for wine throughout her career. A Las Vegas native, Julia made her mark as a sommelier for Guy Savoy and the MGM Grand after receiving a bachelor’s degree in culinary management from the former Cordon Bleu Culinary School. In 2008, Julia realized her dream of working in Napa Valley.
Working for Thomas Keller Restaurant Group at both The French Laundry and Ad Hoc prepared her to take the helm as director of hospitality for several distinguished wineries throughout the valley.
Julia adores her three children, cooking, and the outdoors, and tries to keep up with her husband on their frequent mountain bike rides.
