Jean Vittot was named general manager of Guillaume grapevine nursery in Knights Landing, California.
Vittot worked previously for Taransaud group, first as VP of marketing and sales of Canton cooperage in Santa Rosa and then as manager of Xtrachene oak alternatives division in Bordeaux.
Since 2006, Guillaume Grapevine Nursery CA offers the same commitment to quality, innovation and service that established its worldwide reputation. Guillaume has invested in new increase blocks to offer plants of the highest physiological and sanitary standards. These blocks have just been tested and are Red-Blotch free. The nursery provides ENTAV-INRA, proprietary and California clonal selections (all certified) to California and other U.S. wine markets.
Eckhart Kaesekamp, Guillaume's previous general manager, is setting up his own business and will allow a smooth transition as a part-time consultant.
