Born and raised right here in Sonoma County, Sam ventured into the world of winemaking from an early age and hasn’t looked back. He’s always admired the beautiful, rugged landscape and wouldn’t leave it for the world.

"Kenwood represents the rich history in Sonoma County of winemaking and sharing good times with loved ones."

Born and raised right here in Sonoma County, Sam ventured into the world of winemaking from an early age and hasn’t looked back. He’s always admired the beautiful, rugged landscape and wouldn’t leave it for the world.

While still at school at the age of 16, he was a harvest worker before joining his father to work in fabricating fermentation rooms. Having later completed a degree in Business and Marketing at California State University, he then joined the Kenwood tasting room team to apply his newly found knowledge to selling wine - which brought him where he is today.

His homeland here in Sonoma inspires him every day, from the beauty of its nature to the people and their passion for not just wine, but life in general. Sam is proud to represent our wines and be a part of a team that creates diverse experiences for new wine tasters and experts alike. He loves how Kenwood is a household name and yet it continues to surprise and delight everyone who visits the winery.
