Jonathan DeMichael comes to us from Manhattan, after 10+ years in high-end retail sales at Barneys New York and Jeffrey New York. Jonathan first visited Porter Creek Vineyards and Sonoma County in August of 1989 while on a road trip. After spending most of his vacation time in the Russian River Valley area in the years following, he relocated and settled in Guerneville in 2005, working from his home recording studio and internet business. As a way to meet people (and get out of the house!), Jonathan started working at Porter Creek in August of 2005, part-time, and eventually took over as tasting room sales/wine club manager in 2010. In addition to his ongoing passion for Porter Creek Vineyards, he spends his time composing and recording music, SCUBA diving, riding his motorcycle, and more recently is working on his private pilot’s license.
