A multi-talented winemaker with a love of balanced wines, Alison believes that brands need to be firmly planted in consistent vineyard sites in order to grow. It’s her job at Plata Wine Partners to make our clients’ wine dreams a reality. A graduate of the UC Davis Viticulture & Enology program and recipient of an MBA from the UC Davis Graduate School of Management, Alison brings over 15 years of winemaking experience to bear on every lot of wine. Stints at Chalone Vineyard, Bonny Doon Vineyard as well as in Mendoza, Argentina instilled in her the important lesson that great wines begin in the vineyard.
“At Plata we make wines literally from the ground up,” she says, referencing the long-term relationships she has developed with her company’s vineyards. “I believe in respecting the fruit and letting the vineyards speak their particular truths. Sometimes all I have to do is get out of the way.” When not in the barrel stacks or in Plata’s vineyards, Alison loves to ride her bike in the hills of Carneros, cook and spend time with her husband and two young boys at their home in Napa.
