Wine making consultant
Vineyard installation and management.
A local Viticulture and Enology consultant, B. Alan Geddes began his adventure in the wonderful world of wine 19 years ago as an avid, award winning home wine maker. His passion for making wine led him to educate himself in numerous Viticulture and Enology courses offered by University California, Davis. There, he became certified as a California State Commercial Wine Judge and now serves as a wine judge at the Orange County Fair, California State Fair in Sacramento, Lodi International Wine Competition and various wine events throughout California. He also works as a wine consultant for various wine distributors.
He is excited to announce the 2011 grand opening of The Village Winery! The first full service vine to wine winery located in the quaint town of Westlake Village, California specializing in micro-boutique, high quality wine making. Sourcing grapes from 100% locally grown vineyards - from Hidden Hills to Hidden Valley, the Pacific Palisades and from all over the Santa Monica Mountains, The Village Winery is determined to bring you the best wine that "Malibu Coast" has to offer.
B. Alan is also a certified wine instructor and wine educator. He has taught wine appreciation through sensory evaluation specializing in French and Italian wines at UCLA Extension as well as other facilities throughout Southern California.
One of the first things B. Alan discovered as a wine maker is that you can only produce wine as good as the grapes you are given. So for him, it was a straight line to study and learn about the science of viticulture through the University California Davis. He then adapted their viticultural techniques to the various areas and different microclimates of Southern California. This gives B. Alan the unique ability to make your wine the very best it can be - starting in your vineyard.
It is a well known fact that in the world of growing grapes and making wine there is never a guarantee of quality or success. Experienced grape growers and wine makers will tell you that one way we learn is through others and sometimes through our own mistakes and missteps. B. Alan offers a chance to achieve success in your vineyard -- producing the best potential wine your grapes can produce - the first time!
The secret to understanding and enjoying the dizzying World of Wine begins with developing your own personal love of wine. Cheers!
