Esteban Ferrer, Cellar Crew

As a lifelong resident of WA state I have been involved in the wine industry practically all my life. My father is a vineyard foreman who has been working for Columbia Crest for almost 30 years. Three of my brothers also work at wineries. So you could say I have wine in my blood.

My first job in the wine business was at Hogue Cellars where I got experience in all aspects of winemaking including the cellar, barrel work, and bottling. In 2007 I had the opportunity to work crush and the barrel room at Col Solare. Having worked with both Nicolas and Scott at Hogue I was happy to have the opportunity to work with them once again. Joining the team here at Pacific Rim has given me the opportunity to work with great people and increase my skills and knowledge of winemaking.

When I.m not keeping busy on the job I have five children, Siyarah, Valentin, Felicia, Marrisa, Yesenia, and my beautiful partner Dora who keep me on my toes.
