Sierra Moon Vineyards is very fortunate to have Marco Cappelli as our winemaker. Marco graduated from U.C. Davis with a degree in Enology, and then headed to Europe to learn the European style of winemaking, in France and Italy. Upon his return to the U.S., he had the opportunity to be an understudy to the world famous winemaker, Andre Tchelistcheff. Andre then recommended him to Swanson Winery, where he remained for 17 years, making award winning wines for Swanson.
In 2004, Marco purchased the “Herbert” vineyard located in the Fair Play AVA, and offers consulting services for all phases of winemaking.
