Michael Beaulac has been making wine in the Napa Valley since 1997. As winemaker and general manager for Pine Ridge Vineyards, he oversees winemaking from the winery’s estate vineyards in five appellations: Stags Leap District, Howell Mountain, Oakville, Rutherford, and Carneros.

At the core of his winemaking philosophy is the desire to showcase the exceptional qualities of these diverse estate vineyards, and to this end he works closely with the vineyard and cellar teams.

“I get to make wine in one of the most prestigious grapegrowing areas anywhere,” says Michael. “And then I get to share and enjoy that wine with everyone I meet. I have the best job in the world.”
