Charlie Tsegeletos
Winemaker

Charlie Tsegeletos (pronounced Seg-uh-let-ose) was raised in northern California by Italian and Greek parents. Growing up, his family always had a bottle of wine on the table. He inherited his interest in wine from his great grandfather, Giuppe Guidotti, who in the 1930s grew grapes and made wine in the Guerneville area of Sonoma County, California.

Tom Gendall
Assistant Winemaker

Assistant Winemaker Tom Gendall was born in Christchurch, New Zealand. He worked for wineries there and in Germany before moving to California in 2011, and joining the Jacuzzi extended family in 2016.

Tom believes that "if you look after the vines, the vines will look after you and produce great fruit. They will tell you what they need if you know where to look and what to look for. It's our job to interpret that information and make sure the wines achieve their very best potential."

Well said, Tom. We couldn't agree more.

Fred & Nancy Cline
Proprietors

When Fred was a young boy, he spent summers visiting his grandparents, who lived on a farm in Oakley, California. It was there that Cline learned both the love of agricultural life and the mysteries of vinifying grapes into wine, a love that would later allow him to obtain a degree in agriculture science and management from the University of California-Davis.
