ric Henry, vintner

Ric was born in Napa, but spent most of his younger years in nearby Santa Rosa and Sacramento. After coming back to attend Pacific Union College in Angwin, CA, he hopped around the country practicing social work and starting a family with his college sweetheart, Cheryl.

They returned to the valley in 1990 so Cheryl could join the busy OB/GYN practice at St. Helena Hospital. Ric got his start making wine with a couple barrels of basement Calistoga zinfandel with his brother.
