Next to Ray Signorello, Carlos is the longest lasting employee here at Signorello Vineyards. He was 14 years old in 1986 when he came to the Napa Valley from Tancitaro, Michoacan, Mexico. He worked at Beringer Winery before joining the Signorello team in 1989.
Carlos is basically Pierre's right hand man when it comes to all aspects of production. He oversees everything that happens in the vineyards and directs his crew of up to 20 people on multiple tasks both during the growing season and during harvest. He is also the unofficial Cellar Master of the winery.
During various times of the year, Carlos will be found in the barrel room or caves racking the wines and making sure the wine stays in pristine condition during the aging process. Carlos calls Napa home, but still travels to his home town in Mexico once a year.
