Eric Trojak has had a career in health care and real estate and is transitioning to a full-time winemaker. Largely self-taught, he struck out on his own in 1993 with long time friend Jim Knier. Jim has had a career in financial printing and trade shows. The pair was able to develop an arrangement with the Antinori Family Estate in Napa Valley where they source most of their grapes.
The Antinori Family Estate has nearly 600 acres planted in the Atlas Peak District to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.
