A common term found in the winery business….family. Vintners start the business and
often hope to see their children join the business to keep it in the family….and many times what comes with that are the people that help run the winery.Vineyard workers, cellar rats, tasting room managers…and winemakers.

Bryan Kays is the Winemaker at Trefethen Family Vineyards, located in the Oak Knoll District
of Napa Valley. Working for the winery for ten years, Bryan has seen all angles of the business
and like many winemakers, he has a good story to tell. Bryan was in Milwaukee for a winemakers dinner at Eddie Martini’s restaurant in early March and he stopped by the LBTV studios to tell
a few of those stories.
