Our Team

With a combined 120 vintages (not to mention the decades of experience represented by assistant vineyard managers and field foremen), the management team at VPS has farmed in every county from Mendocino to Santa Barbara. Along the way, managers have participated on the Boards of many statewide wine industry organizations (Crossland with CAWG (as President), GWSS), sustainable agriculture advocacy groups (Heinzen with Napa Green and RCDs, Crout with CCVT, CAPCA, Winstead with CCVT), and local wine industry leadership (Crossland and Winstead with the PRWCA). VPS actively participates with research initiatives from Cal Poly, UC Davis and the USDA, and help promote viticultural improvement and outreach groups (including AVF and Paso Robles Vit Tech). Along with the strong commitment to individual professional development, VPS fosters a team-attitude in regards to client satisfaction through robust communication, scheduled team meetings and regular group excursions and extracurricular activities (read: festivals and concerts).
