Purchased in 1988 by her mother Brigitte Seebass, the vineyard has been the focus of Michelle’s family for most of her life. Her careers in technology and legal fields in San Francisco gave her an excellent basis to transition into the day-to-day operations of the estate winemaking business, as she now oversees the finance, compliance, and planning of her company. Michelle personally oversees operations and welcomes guests to our beautiful Tasting Room in Boonville, California, in the heart of Anderson Valley. Her husband Scott, has also transitioned from a technology marketing career spanning 30 years. In San Francisco he lead his own company that produced branding strategies, new business initiatives and advertising campaigns. Today he oversees marketing, working with winemakers, creative designers, distributors, restaurants and the trade to develop sales channel opportunities for the business. Together, with their son Aidan, the family is immersed in the winemaking business and making world-class wines. Michelle’s family emigrated from Germany and her first language was German. They create highly acclaimed and awarded wines with a subtle, food-friendly European palate in California, and look forward to importing wines from small world-wide producers in the future as well.
