The Porter Family Vineyards family tree has three main branches: the winemaking team, the vineyard team, and the sales team. The Porters and Wolfes themselves are deeply entwined in each of these branches, providing leadership, support, or hard labor to whatever task is at hand, whether it’s helping during harvest and crush operations, pouring tastings and giving tours, designing new technology and solving problems, conducting vineyard experiments, running laboratory analyses, planning events, or balancing the books. This is truly a family owned and operated venture.
But the Porters are not the only people invested in the success of this winery:
- The Martinez family – a hard-working, reliable, and never-faltering crew – maintains the vineyard and performs the winery operations, always with a smile.
- Ken Bernards directs the winemaking, lending his highly trained palate and considerable expertise to the process of producing the highest quality wines possible.
- Joel Weiss, the Porter Family Vineyards director of marketing, takes the show on the road, showcasing our vintages through his personal passion for all things grape and fermented.
