Chris Bowland

Director of Viticulture

Pinot Noir disciples far and wide depend on Chris’ well-trained instincts in the vineyard. As steward of some of Sonoma and Russian River Valley’s most treasured grape growing acres, Chris deals with issues like pest and disease control and water conservation on a daily basis. Chris’ strength in the vineyards comes from an extensive background in both farming and agriculture, and an innate ability to draw from both philosophies as vineyard situations demand.
