About The Winery
After several years in production winemaking John began marketing barrels in the North American market for Seguin Moreau, while pursuing an MBA at the UC Davis Graduate School of Management. After ten years at Seguin Moreau, holding the positions of Enologist, VP Production and CEO, John began Chercher Trouver (to seek, to find) with his wife, Karen. The goal of Chercher Trouver is to seek and to find the best grapes and vineyards and make these wines in the vineyards with the help and patience of Mother Nature.

About The Winemaker
John’s fermentation and distillation career started on the family farm in Washington State. Every year hard cider would be made using the apples from the orchard and wine from grapes purchased in Eastern Washington. With roots in agriculture, John left the family dairy farm in 1985 to pursue a degree in Viticulture & Enology at UC Davis. Graduating in 1988, he began his winemaking career at the prestigious Château Lafite Rothschild. In 1990 John began working as assistant winemaker at J Sparkling Wine in Healdsburg before moving on to Mumm Napa Valley and eventually the winemaking position at Chateau Woltner (now Ladera) on Howell Mountain.
