Mike’s experience spans all major wine categories, price points (economy to ultra-premium), and growing regions (California, Washington, Oregon, France, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, South America and South Africa).

“The Cakebread Cellars success story is nearly five decades in the making, yet many great chapters remain to be written,” Mike says. “I am honored to work with the family and their dedicated employees to continue building on this tradition of excellence.”

Mike enjoys sharing a bottle of Annahala Pinot Noir with his wife, playing tennis, taking tropical vacations, attending sporting events with his son, and trying to cajole his daughter into accompanying him to Journey concerts.
