Our Team

With a combined 105 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 (Heinzen with GWSS/PD), sustainable agriculture advocacy groups (Heinzen with ASFMRA, Napa Green and RCDs, Winstead with CCVT), and local wine industry leadership (Heinzen and Winstead with the PRWCA, Smith with IGGPRA, Matthews with the Vineyard Team). 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 encourages a team-like attitude in regards to client satisfaction through robust communication, scheduled team meetings and regular group excursions that foster a true sense of camaraderie among the VPS staff.

The Correia Company
It has been my good fortune to have known and worked with Randy Heinzen for many years, in both the Central Coast and the heady arena of Napa Valley. His obvious viticultural skills and knowledge are exceeded only by his unique ability to understand and implement the econometrics of vineyard investments, development and management, walking the tightrope of creating and preserving value while minimizing risks.
