Ryan started The Vintner Vault in 2003. After spending 8 years as Cellar Master and Assistant Winemaker for Justin Winery, Ryan found a need for a local retailer to provide the supplies required to produce top quality vintages. With his vast knowledge in the industry, he has been able to bring together all of the materials needed in one place. He has also helped many winemakers with their wine-making questions and dilemmas. This knowledge is handed down to every employee in his company.

Winery Equipment Testimonial:
"Upgrading your winery from 1000 cases per year to 3000 to 5000 can be a daunting task. The choices in winery equipment, capacity and price vary all over the place. The great thing about Ryan is, having been a wine maker for years, he knows how to design things from start to finish. When I harvested my first ten tons of the year at 6:30 a.m., Ryan and his staff were there making sure everything was working correctly. I knew I had made a good decision."
