Ralf Holdenried, with an eclectic mix of winemaking experience that spans two continents and over 15 years of crafting award-winning wines in California, leads the winemaking team at Black Stallion Estate Winery. Originally from Rheinhessen, he studied winemaking and viticulture at Germany’s prestigious University of Geisenheim and the University of California at Davis. “Winemaking starts in the vineyard,” says Ralf. “Location, climate, picking decisions – these are all crucially important factors that will ultimately determine the quality of your finished wine. At Black Stallion Estate Winery, I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to personally hand-select our fruit from some of the finest vineyards and AVA’s in Napa Valley.”
