"At the age of 25, Alan assumed the mantle of winemaker and today is one of the leading next generation, carving a path into the future of Napa Valley winemaking. Alan is soft spoken, with an innate intelligence, plus energy that seems to be constantly bubbling just below the surface, ready to spill out at any moment. He has a defined vision for the future, displaying a passion for life, wine, and family. Unsurprisingly, when you sip Viader wines, you will experience the same complexity and subtleties. They (whomever “they” are) say that wine is grown in the vineyard-but I have found that a great wines also reflect the winemaker’s personality and vision as well."
