Charlie Miller, Winemaker
We’re delighted that Charlie took over the principal winemaking duties at the end of 2018.
A hyper-talented and skilled winemaker, Charlie has compiled a highly impressive resume. He got his start at Starmont in Napa followed by harvests in Argentina, South Africa, and New Zealand, all before working his way up to Assistant Winemaker at AP VIN, the cult Pinot winery.
Prior to being cherry-picked by La Honda, Charlie spent 5 years in Sonoma as Assistant Winemaker to Michael Cruse (2016 SF Chronicle Winemaker of the Year) handcrafting some of California’s most sought-after wines. The stunning results also led them to overseeing ‘custom crush’ production for a dozen other wineries.
When Charlie’s nose isn’t in a barrel, he’s likely to be walking the beach with his lovely wife, young son and dog while plotting the next adventure.
