Meet The Team
Our family venture began when Lisa and Lothar Maier purchased a 20 acre vineyard located on Kalthoff Commons in the southwest corner of the Livermore Valley in January 2006.
Our Winemaker Brent Amos holds a degree in Oenology and Viticulture from Fresno State University. He has previously worked at Ferrari-Carano, Fritz, and for 7 years he produced award-winning wines at Fenestra winery in Livermore, CA. Year 2000 was Brent's first vintage.
