WINEMAKER, VICTORIA COLEMAN
Victoria is a graduate of the UC Davis enology program and began her winemaking journey at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars as production assistant. She has returned to the Napa Valley after a stint at Jade Valley Winery near Xian, China, and consulting with new wineries there as well. Victoria was exposed to classic, Old World winemaking in 2008 when she worked alongside Erick Tourbier at Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux, France. She is one of Napa's exciting new winemakers. Victoria's portfolio at Lobo Wines includes both the Napa Valley and Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon for us, Pinot Noir and our Proprietary Blend of Cabernet and Syrah, "Howl". This year marks her 11th vintage for Lobo wines.
RANDY LEWIS is one of Napa's premier winemakers. Virtually everything he makes scores well nto the 90's with the Wine spectator. His 2003 Chardonnay, incorporating some of our fruit, was called by the Wine Spectator "the superstar of the vintage" and featured on the cover. In ten consecutive years dealing with our fruit, he has never received less than a"93". We are thrilled to have his help crafting a 100% estate grown Chardonnay.
As vineyard manager, Mario brings both experience and expertise to the Lobo vineyards. He has 30 years of vineyard experience, including 13 years as the supervisor of vineyard development for Robert Mondavi’s two most famous vineyards, Opus One and To-Kalon. He manages vineyards in the Stags Leap district, as well as the Oak KAnoll and Atlas Peak appellations where Lobo is located.
