"When starting at NVS, I was a new comer to the
vineyard and wine industry. I enjoyed trying
different wines, but was a beginner at best.
The most involvement in agriculture I had was
bucking hay in the summer to help condition for
football. When my job brought me out of the
business office and into the vineyard, I was a bit
concerned with how I would be received by the
vineyard professionals and wine makers. I soon
found this concern was unnecessary as everyone
has been eager to impart their knowledge from their
experiences in the industry. Many had also come
from different professions before finding their
calling in grapes.
So the reason I enjoy my job boils down to the
people I work for, the people I work with, and the
sense of community in the industry I am a part of. "
