       Winemaker Mike Robustelli

Mike Robustelli

McManis Family Vineyard's Winemaker, Mike Robustelli, joined our winemaking team in 1999, just after receiving his degree in Enology from California State University, Fresno and became our head winemaker in 2011.  Mike understands the needs and concerns of our winery customers, and plays a leading role in delivering the quality that customers have come to expect from McManis Family Vineyards.

"By keeping the lots small, we really can do a number of setups," Mike says. "We can treat each tank differently with regard to yeast, fermentation, temperature, oak, how long they stay on the lees. We've built as much flexibility as we can into each individual element of the process."

McManis Family Vineyards' President, Ron McManis, says, "The benefit of having someone like Mike on staff is that there is always someone here to look after the wines. If they have concerns about a batch of wine, our staff has someone they can  discuss the problems with and help them both understand and reach a solution."
