Dan Fitzgerald joined the Pellegrini winemaking team in January 2008. A Northern California native, he lived in Europe from 1981 to 1994.
His passion for winemaking began after working a harvest in the Dry Creek Valley in 2002. Taking advantage of both hemispheres, Dan worked back-to-back vintages in Australia at Coldstream Hills in the Yarra Valley, Robert Sinskey Vineyards in Napa Valley, then back down under to lead a team of cellarhands at Coldstream Hills.
Dan completed his B.S. in Enology at CSU Fresno in 2007, and worked on the 2007 harvest team at Williams-Selyem Winery before joining Pellegrini Family Vineyards.
