Winemaker Matt Ward leads this tight-knit team, working closely with long-time associate winemaker Romel Rivera and Steve Pride. Pure of focus, the team is in constant conversation, brainstorming new ideas and implementing technical changes with the goal of coaxing the finest wines possible out of Pride's mountaintop fruit.
The next time you pull the cork on your favorite Pride wine, please fill your glass and raise a toast to this hardworking team. A wonderful and dedicated group of men led by Ranch Foreman, Jose Castro, their efforts correlate directly to the quality of the wine we produce and the beauty of the property.
Paul Skinner has been our viticultural consultant since 1990. Paul has made many improvements to our viticultural practice over these past 30 years and continues to provide his technical insight as we move forward. Steve, Paul, Matt and Jose are in daily communication about new and ongoing strategies for ensuring that each of our 50 vineyard blocks is producing the best possible wine.
