"My agriculture roots were never far behind as I explored the world as a Photographer's Mate in the US Navy and after college, The San Francisco Chronicle.
Soon I was back in the dirt with my camera and picking bins making wine from unique Sonoma Winegrowers. Classes at UC Davis were crucial in building the foundation for the fundamentals of making wine.
Understanding how to bring out those vineyard personalities came from Viticulture classes and of course getting your boots dusty!
After 6 years making wine and attending classes we started Eric Ross Winery in 1994 on the site of an old Italian winery crafting unique varietals of Albarino, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Tempranillo, Old Vine Zinfandel and Cabernet from the Mayacamas Mountains and yes PORT for dessert."
