Travis is a Southern California native and graduate of UC Davis with a degree in Viticulture and Enology. His passion for winemaking led him to a broad range of winemaking experience, from sparkling wine at Gloria Ferrer in Sonoma, to Vidal Estates in New Zealand, biodynamic winemaking with indigenous grape varietals in Sicily, and new representations of the Rhone at Sine Qua Non in Ventura. In 2013 he began an internship with Colgin before joining the team full time as Production Assistant in 2015. Travis loves calling Napa home, exploring the natural beauty of the valley. He spends his free time learning about the native flora and fauna and watching over his chickens.
