Over the years Charles has worked in both Napa and Sonoma Counties, gaining hands on experience in all aspects of winemaking. He has built a strong reputation for the passion of excellence throughout the industry. As a consulting winemaker for many exclusive wineries over the years, such as Viader, Barnett Vineyards, Paoletti Vineyards, Kuleto, and Tamayo Family Vineyard, Charles has had the great fortune to develop relationships with some of the foremost producers in the industry. With these resources Charles is able to secure the finest fruit for his personal project hope & grace wines. Today, Charles continues to consult for several clients, but is making more time to focus on hope & grace wines and his Yountville tasting room.
