Our 2005, 2006 and 2007 wines were made by Brian Loring. Winemaker Aaron Walker (previously assistant winemaker under Loring), in conjunction with consulting winemaker Kenneth Juhasz combined efforts with the 2008 harvest. Walker and Juhasz are terroir specialists who strive to bring out the distinct characteristics of each of the sites we source for our fruit.
As Winemaker for Pali Wine Co., Aaron Walker oversees all aspects of the winery’s Lompoc production facility. While Consulting Winemaker Kenneth Juhasz’ guidance ensures excellence in every step of production, Aaron is the primary caretaker for Pali’s line-up of wines. He’s a dedicated craftsman who is thrilled to be making wine from top vineyards and appellations on the West Coast.
