Rob Sinton, Winemaker
As luck would have it, Rob chose UC Davis for college. There he took a wine course, which led him to start home winemaking by fermenting some El Dorado Mourvedre. As soon as he had a chance, Rob switched his major to Viticulture and Enology.
Rob and Tom selected the Placerville vineyard site along with the layout and varieties. Although Tom developed and managed the vineyard through the early years, in 2020 Rob actively began working on the El Dorado winemaking with his father. In 2022, he relocated to Placerville to become head winemaker. Currently, Rob primarily manages the winemaking, but also takes the lead managing the technical infrastructure and the thousand landscape trees Tom and Rob have planted.
