Mendocino Wine Company Appoints Jordan Ferrier as Director of Winemaking

Posted on March 30, 2021

 

UKIAH, CA (March 29, 2021) – Mendocino Wine Company and Chase Thornhill, Owner/General Manager, are pleased to announce the appointment of Jordan Ferrier as Director of Winemaking. He will oversee all production and winemaking for Mendocino Wine Company’s six in-house brands and custom crush operations. 

“I am thrilled to have Jordan joining us. His wealth of experience, skill and leadership will be a great asset to both our team and our wines,” Chase Thornhill said. Ferrier brings with him over 20 years of experience working with premium wine brands including lead winemaking positions with The Hogue Wine Cellars, and venerable industry giants Constellation Brands and The Wine Group. 

“I’m excited about taking on this new role and joining the team. After having worked in larger facilities, I was specifically looking for a smaller, family-owned, entrepreneurial company making a broad range of wines,” Jordan said. “I’ve always been intrigued by Mendocino both for its natural beauty and its diverse terroir. Cooler coastal regions allow for crisp white wines and delicate reds, while the warmer eastern interior, dotted with old vine vineyards, can produce amazingly robust, hearty reds.”
