Jim Hendon named director of winemaking at Paso Robles Wine Services
Jim Hendon, formerly of Tarrica Wine Cellars, was named director of winemaking at Paso Robles Wine Services (PRWS). Hendon earned a degree in Fermentation Science from UC Davis in 2002. He held a harvest position at Gloria Ferrer in the Carneros appellation of Northern California, and then moved to Lake County, where he assisted in the launch of Tulip Hill Winery, also a custom-crush facility. PRWS was founded in 2002 and is located in an industrial parkway outside Paso Robles. This custom crush facility currently houses nearly 30 small Central Coast-based wine producers, though a new annexation will provide case goods and barrel storage to a growing number of producers.
