Scott, a Kansas native, has been farming and ranching throughout the Western Hemisphere for over 15 years. Cowgirl, his trusty sidekick, is often seen hunting gophers in the vineyard or greeting patrons at the tasting room.
After a long career in education, Crystal pivoted to wine in 2016, and she’s never looked back. She and her husband discovered Porter Creek Vineyards when they first moved to Sonoma County in 1998, and it’s been her happy place ever since! When she’s not inhaling the beauty that is the Russian River Valley, you can find her at her desk writing poetry or reading recipes.
Maria has been with Porter Creek Vineyards for 30+ years, originally hired by George Davis, Alex’s father. Maria started part time, and worked her way to full time eventually. She helps with everything in the vineyard, from planting, to all aspects of harvest, pruning, and bottling and labelling!
It is difficult to picture Porter Creek without Maria’s presence. Maria is also responsible for the beautiful gardens around the house and tasting room areas. Maria always has a smile to give…so say hi when you see her!
