Meet the Winemaker

Jean Hoefliger was born and raised in Switzerland, where he first worked on his godfather’s estate. He decided to forego a career in international finance to become more intimately involved in the fascinating field of winemaking. Determined to learn winemaking from the best, he moved to Bordeaux, France, and then to South Africa to further his training. In the meantime, Jean completed his formal viticulture and winemaking education at the Swiss Federal School at Changins, the only National Centre of Excellence for viticulture, oenology, and arboriculture. Jean soon thereafter made his way to California and worked at Hartford Court, Newton, and Alpha Omega in Napa Valley. In April 2019, Jean shifted his focus to consulting winemaker, opting to share his knowledge and instincts to help more wineries achieve their goals.
