Winemaking & Field Crew
Aron Weinkauf, Winemaker & Vineyard Manager
In May 2011, Aron assumed the role of Spottswoode Winemaker. He grew up in Reno, Nevada before moving to Georgia to study at Berry College. While at Berry he was able to travel and study in Europe, where he first began to learn about wine. Upon returning to the states, Aron determined that winemaking would be an extremely rewarding profession, considering his fondness for wine and food and his love of farming and family. He moved to Fresno to study winemaking and graduated with his Viticulture and Enology degree from Fresno State University in 2005. He worked for a local winery while attending school, and then worked a 2005 harvest internship in Sonoma County.
Aron joined Spottswoode’s production team as Assistant Winemaker in the spring of 2006, and added the title Vineyard Manager in 2009. In his dual roles of Winemaker and Vineyard Manager, Aron enthusiastically pursues our commitment to organically farming the finest grapes and crafting the finest wines, without compromise. Aron and his wife Claire are the proud parents of a puppy named Cachou, who loves to greet winery visitors.
