BIO

Growing up in a family that loved food and cherished its German roots, wine has always been an important part of my life. After graduating with a degree in Agriculture from the University of Illinois I began my adult venture into the world of wine. In the mid 1990's, I fulfilled one of my lifelong dreams by moving to Colorado and was delighted to discover Colorado's wine country. After attending the Colorado Mountain Winefest, I learned of a new winery opening in Evergreen. Soon I began a tradition of mountain hikes and lunch at Creekside Cellars.
I admired owner Bill Donahue for his quiet spirit and love of wine. On one of my visits to Creekside I mentioned to Bill my interest in learning how to make wine. His encouragement was the spark I needed to pursue my second dream. I resigned as Director of Production and Distribution for Dazbog Coffee Company, and began volunteering at Creekside Cellars seeking all Bill had to offer as a teacher and mentor.
Shortly thereafter I enrolled in the University of California Davis graduate certificate program in Enology and Viticulture taking my hands on knowledge to the next level. In addition to learning the winemaking process, I've had the opportunity to work in Creekside Cellars' vineyard, which I love as it takes me back to my roots in agriculture. I love driving the tractor and getting my hands (and the rest of myself) dirty! Agriculture is very fulfilling. Visit www.creeksidecellars.net for information on the winery, vineyard and restaurant.
