Director of Hospitality
A native of San Francisco, Dean grew up in a small town In Ohio where he developed a passion for wine working in retail wine shops during college. That passion eventually took him to Arizona to fuel a career as a professional Sommelier in two of the world’s finest luxury resorts. He now finds home in Napa where his experience in both cellar production and tasting room operations at premier Napa and Sonoma wineries has culminated in his favorite job to date - Diector of Hospitality at TVH. When not waxing poetic about our Cabernet, he finds his zen restoring classic vintage Italian scooters in his workshop on nearby Mare Island.
