Jon Priest

Winemaker Jon Priest embodies Etude‘’s founding philosophy that winemaking begins in the vineyard long before the harvest and that superior grape growing diminishes the need for intervention. A California native, Jon established an early reputation while working at Wild Horse Winery and Adelaida Cellars for more than a dozen years, and earned further critical acclaim as the Winemaker for TAZ Vineyards in the Central Coast. In spring 2005, Jon Priest moved north to the Napa Valley to work alongside Tony Soter and continue the tradition of crafting world-class Etude wines.
