Originally from Tacoma, Washington, John grew up in the Bay Area and for the last 25 years he has called Sonoma County home.
Having worked at several wineries in Sonoma and Napa, John most recently managed the Direct to Consumer Team at Ledson Winery in Kenwood. John joined Paradise Ridge Winery in May 2021, giving him the opportunity to work with an exceptional team devoted to creating memorable food, wine, and hospitality experiences for our guests. When not entertaining at his home in Santa Rosa, John enjoys hiking on Taylor Mountain, and dining at the many amazing restaurants Sonoma County offers. Another passion searching used record stores, flea markets, and thrift stores for vintage vinyl records to add to his 2000 plus collection. On some evenings, he can be found spinning vinyl records as DJ Johnny, sharing his treasured music with the world.
