Chris Cameron - EVP/Director of Winemaking

Chris Cameron is an International winemaker with a dynamic career in the wine industry that spans over 30 vintages. He has a committed and passionate approach to all aspects of winemaking.

Chris has been making wine in the Paso Robles wine growing area for the last four vintages and is very excited about what the area can do viticulturally, in being able to ripen both Bordeaux and Rhone varietals. In addition, Chris has significant crush and winemaking experience in Australia, Italy, France and Turkey.

He achieved international success by winning “The Best Merlot Worldwide” at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London in addition to receiving recognition with many highly respected publications. His Australian credits include winning, among many others, their industry’s most prestigious wine award, the “Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy”.

Chris’s philosophical approach to winemaking can best be described as minimalist intervention. He feels that truly great wines are inherently dependent on the vineyard and the real art of winemaking is the ability to translate what’s on the vine to bottle. Structure and balance are the most critical components of a wine and each varietal released must be an accurate reflection of the style and the region.

Chris’s interpretation of the vineyards and varieties is heralding a new era for the Company
