Meet the Winemaker: Nancy Irelan
In addition to being the winemaker at Red Tail Ridge, she is a fabulous storyteller and her passion for wine is infectious. She has been in the wine industry for over 35 years and is a joy to taste with.
Nancy’s career path includes a decade at E&J Gallo as VP of Viticulture & Enology R&D, a PhD in grape genetics in the UC-Davis Viticulture and Enology Depart, along with various consulting gigs.
After years of large volume production and mass appeal, Red Tail Ridge is a personal journey of introspection for Nancy, as she focuses on how to best represent the unique personality and terroir of her vineyard. Each wine is a tiny time capsule of typicity that reflects a moment in the life-history of the winery.
