Definitely Ernie Maldonado at David Abreu Vineyard Management. Ernie has a sixth sense when it comes to growing vines, he understands all of the intricacies of the life cycle of plants. No one has accomplished more than Ernie, and without being in the spotlight. Plus he is just an amazing guy.
Pushing the envelope. Learning something new with every winemaking and viticulture project. Always having a new challenge.
