The Craig Stoller Collection Announces Appointment of New Winemaker for Paris Valley Road Estate
Paso Robles, CA – Nancy and Craig Stoller are delighted to announce Assistant Winemaker Doug Hidinger will assume the title as Winemaker for Paris Valley Road Estate Winery.
After earning a degree in Agricultural Business with a minor in Wine and Viticulture from Cal Poly, Doug Hidinger mastered small vintage scale at Chamisal Vineyards in Edna Valley and managed large lot production at Oyster Bay in Blenheim, New Zealand. Once he returned stateside, Hidinger furthered his experience at Justin Vineyards and Winery in Paso Robles where he served as Assistant Winemaker. Hidinger has used his deep understanding of winemaking and broad range of experience to build the Paris Valley Road brand.
“I can’t thank the Stollers enough for this opportunity. Truly it’s a privilege, and I’m excited for the road ahead. The Paris Valley Road brand is just getting started and I can’t wait to see where we are five years from now,” shares Hidinger.
“We have a dynamic team that is just as enthusiastic and passionate about making wine as I am,” says Stoller. “We look forward to seeing how Alex and Doug will make us even better and I’m grateful to be working alongside them both to continue building our brands and perfecting each vintage,” concluded Stoller.
When asked about what’s next for both brands, Stoller noted, “We definitely have some plans coming, but our goal remains the same—to make amazing wines that people enjoy. Meanwhile, I’d encourage you to pick up a bottle and taste the impressive Central Coast wines these world-class winemakers have helped create.”
