Robert Biale Vineyards Names New Winemaker


Date: 07/22/13

Robert Biale Vineyards, a lauded specialist in the production of Zinfandel and Petite Sirahs from historic vineyards in Napa and Sonoma, has announced that it has signed on Trester “Tres” Goetting as its new winemaker.

Goetting replaces former Biale winemaker Steve Hall who left Biale in June to pursue other interests.

Goetting will be leaving his positions as winemaker for Krupp Brothers/Stagecoach Vineyards, and Valley of the Moon Winery’s top tier Zinfandel program to assume his new responsibilities in time for the commencement of the 2013 harvest

Prior to Krupp Brothers/Stagecoach, Goetting worked in all aspects of winemaking as associate winemaker at Ladera Vineyards from 2004 to 2010 and prior to that, from 1998 to 2004 as assistant winemaker at St. Clement Vineyards. Goetting has also produced custom wines for the prestigious Post Ranch Inn at Big Sur.

Goetting will work closely with the Biale production team of Bob Biale and enologist Kevin Powell in all the Biale estate vineyards and other vineyards in Napa and Sonoma valleys including Stagecoach, R.W. Moore, Grande, Old Kraft, Varozza, Pagani Ranch, Monte Rosso, and Bedrock. “It is vital to our highest-quality standard that we approach winemaking from a vineyard-first point of view, and Tres Goetting has the viticultural and technical expertise to unleash the full potential of these historic vineyards we work with,” says Bob Biale, Robert Biale Vineyards co-founder and vineyard manager.

Adds Biale co-founder Dave Pramuk, “Tres Goetting is a rising star Napa and Sonoma Valley enologist and viticulturalist who brings with him the passion, energy, expertise, skills and experience necessary to maintain the expressive and elegant style for which Biale is known and to elevate Biale’s status as a leader in the production of wines from California’s great Zinfandel and Petite Sirah vineyards. Tres is as excited about producing great Zins and Petites as we are – he’s a great fit for Biale.”
