Biographical Information
I am the enologist for Stag's Leap Wine               Cellars in Napa. I supervise the lab--a lab manager and staff of               3 lab techs--in conducting chemical analysis on grape juice and               wine. I also support the winemaker's in a variety of capacities,               tasting, blending, conducting experimental trials. It is extremely               interesting and enjoyable work. I enjoy using my chemistry background               and the integration with viticulture, food, tourism and sales. Potential               chemistry majors should know that whenever I was applying for a               job, by employers have been impressed that I had a chemistry degree               rather than another "softer" science because they regard               the discipline as challenging and useful.
