In 2008, after spending 8 years working at wineries in New Zealand, California and Burgundy’s Montrachet, JAK & Janice hired winemaker & viticulturist Chris Carson. Chris is hands-on in the vineyard, following the grape from pruning to harvest and creating excellent wines. He especially loves the heartbreak grape, Pinot Noir. A graduate of Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand with his Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology, Chris Carson brings his expertise in crafting award-winning wines from around the world.
