“Intentus” in Latin translates to Intention and/or Purpose.
Intentus gives me the freedom to explore various winegrowing regions and work with small, family-owned farms outside of my family's estate on Howell Mountain. Over the past 20+ years I've made great friendships with many small farmers and appreciate their dedication and passion in their viticulture. Being able to support and work alongside these hardworking farmers is highly rewarding and making wines from incredible wine growing appellations is an adventure that I'm very excited about.
This project is also very personal for me. I'm not only a winemaker, but also a First Responder.
As an active volunteer for both the Napa County Sheriff's Search & Rescue (SAR) team and the Napa County Deer Park Volunteer Fire department, I have seen communities completely devastated by natural disasters and wildfires...and it’s heartbreaking. Yet at the same time such trials and experiences have been incredibly inspirational and have encouraged me to step up and act.
The key purpose with Intentus is to allow for substantial charitable giving to the organizations that support communities in need and the brave first responders willing to put themselves on the frontlines.
I started Intentus not only to make great wines, but to also have a meaningful purpose behind it.
I invite you to join me in this journey!
