In 2008, Lynda Hanson joined Hanzell Vineyards as Associate Winemaker. Lynda comes from a diverse background of business, viticulture and winemaking experience. Working for the family retail wine shop launched her into learning more about wine. And it was her love for the wines of Burgundy that first inspired her to pursue a career in winemaking. After spending a year abroad in Bordeaux and getting her Master in Enology from UC Davis, Lynda worked in winegrowing regions such as Central Coast, Russian River, Napa and Argentina, where she started Tapiz Winery for Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke.
