Vineyard and Sales Manager

Michael  joined the Terragena team in June of 2016. Assigning him a job title is almost silly – he does everything around here that Chris and Nickie don’t do themselves. He takes care of the grapevines, maintains the off-grid power and water systems, hosts AirBnB guests, helps with winemaking, and manages wine sales.

Michael is originally from Fresno California, but was also fortunate to spend part of his youth living on the east coast. His fascination with flora and fauna cultivated his love for the land, particularly timberland. While in the central valley he tirelessly strove to better his community by volunteering with mobile medical clinics, with school districts in the area, and environmental organizations. His sense of adventure and love for all things unique and historically pertinent drove him to explore many regions and opportunities ranging from higher education to work in the high sierras. These same loves led him to become a thriving member of the Terragena team.
