Page Wine Cellars:
The story of Page Wine Cellars began in 1997 when we put our first vintage to barrel, one barrel, 36 cases of Page Proprietary Red, but the dream resonated in my mind long before that. From culinary school student to server to chef to sommelier to winemaker, the path may look reasonable, but along the way, some moments played louder than others to make this dream a reality.

The story of Page Wine Cellars began in 1997 when we put our first vintage to barrel, one barrel, 36 cases of Page Proprietary Red, but the dream resonated in my mind long before that. From culinary school student to server to chef to sommelier to winemaker, the path may look reasonable, but along the way, some moments played louder than others to make this dream a reality. One early moment that I believe was instrumental for so many reasons to the creation of Page Wine Cellars was the summer of 1996 after completing my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. I went on to Europe to lecture to culinary students about wine, wine service and cooking in collaboration with Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, Switzerland. Throughout the summer, I had the opportunity to tour many Chateaus through Bordeaux, but St Emilion struck a cord like no other, leading me to visit Ausonne, Cheval Blanc, Pavie and many more. Over a glass of Lillet and a macaroon on the town square of St Emilion after tasting countless beautiful wines from the region, I thought, what if an American went back to California with the gained knowledge to craft a St Emilion styled blend paying hommage to that region while integrating the signature Napa Valley Terrior and fruit character to the wine? A wild idea it may have been, but I did already have a good knowledge of Napa Valley winemaking having worked with Michael Havens and the Truchard Family as their respective asst winemaker in the early 90s while performing sommelier duties and serving at several restaurants throughout the Napa Valley to get by. I also found myself cooking at Domaine Carneros for many influential wine personalities including Jayson Pahlmeyer, Chrisitan Mouiex, Claude Taittinger, the Baroness de Rothschild among many. I eventually continued to branch out taking on the wine program at the San Francisco’s iconic restaurant Stars in the late 90s. Working three jobs was norm for me, saving every penny was the standard, and making my own wine under my own label was the goal. This grassroots approach of attaining knowledge from every facet of the business helped immensely as I created my brand and approach to making wine, I am indebted to many for providing so much.
