About Us

 

George

George Hendry has lived on the ranch and tended its grapevines his entire life. He received undergraduate and graduate degrees from UC Berkeley, and has divided his time between the vineyard and the design of cyclotrons ever since. Today, as president of Cyclotron Inc., he continues to design and manufacture these particle accelerators, used to produce radio pharmaceuticals for medical imaging. Whether growing grapes, making Hendry wines, or designing cyclotrons, George applies the same tenacity and ability to apply fundamental concepts. His detailed approach to winegrowing has earned a reputation, and is reflected in our vineyard and our wine.

 

Mike and Molly Hendry

Mike Hendry is George’s nephew, and has been an important part of operations at the Hendry Ranch for 25 years. Mike manages the vineyard and directs sales and marketing for Hendry. Molly has a full time job as an attorney for Napa County, and is an important part of the Hendry sales team. Mike and Molly also make a Zinfandel from the historic Moore Vineyard, which is owned by Molly’s uncle, Bill Moore.

The Crew

The attention that each grapevine receives during the year is tremendously important to the finished product.  Our vineyard crew has been with us for an average of more than 20 years, and the pride they take in their work shows in every bottle.   From left to right, and top to bottom, they are: Jose Fernandez, Edouardo Diaz de Leon, Gonzalo Herrera, Juan Prado, Rafael Melgoza, Manuel Plancarte, Pedro Gutiemez, Santiago Torres and Vicente Diaz de Leon. 

Jeff and Jan

Also a partner in George’s Cyclotron Inc, Jeff Miller has been with the winery since its beginning.  Jeff manages the winery and coordinates the operations that get the wine from tank to bottle.  Jan Miller applies her experience as a former business owner to managing winery accounting, and is also responsible for the in-house lab work.   Jan’s dog Sadie is a friendly fixture here at the winery, and will gladly show anyone where we keep the dog biscuits.

Rafa and Luis

Rafael Melgoza, along with his son Luis, who is pursuing his studies in viticulture and enology, are responsible for carrying out the day to day cellar operations.  Together with Jan, Jeff and Mike, they assist George in overseeing fermentation and development of the wines.

Angela

Angela Douglass manages our very busy office with boundless energy, efficiency and competence. She is the person who graciously answers everyone’s questions and gives timely responses to all requests. Maybe all that patience and grace comes from being the mother of a very curious six year old. Look closely and you’ll see a halo over her head.

Tamara

In addition to working with Mike’s beautiful photos for our mailers and marketing materials, and helping to produce our labels, Tamara Landre lends a helping hand to Angela in the office and George in the tasting room.  Her extensive wine knowledge and experience in graphic design and writing mean that she wears many hats here at the winery.
