Driving Teams to a Good Score

 

Growing up in a competitive Napa Valley, I approached many experiences with the idea that being part of a team was the most important thing. This happened not only in the sports I played, but also in the wine cellar. Since I was young, I have been playing sports and making what we all love: wine. What truly helped me excel in both of these things was the teamwork that came with it. 

 

 

When I was young my life revolved around soccer. I felt I had a purpose on the field. I was there to play hard and win, using my best sets of skills. I loved everything about being part of a team and having an opportunity to work together. I was captain for many years and my teammates gave me the name, Tucka. I also had an opportunity to play soccer with my brothers and cousins.

I now find myself a part of a different team. It isn’t necessarily a sports team, but it is still a team. The cellar is a place where everyone has to have a common goal and to understand that the only way to accomplish that goal is by working together.  Each year we are committed to work hard from the harvest, to the pressing and the fermentation of the grapes, and finally, to the bottling of the wine. By working together through all the stages that go into winemaking we are able to accomplish the beautiful art of wine. Even today I find myself on a team with family members and close friends. We are all here to achieve the same thing….GREAT WINE and a GREAT TIME!
