Ask anyone at Sequoia Grove to describe winery President Michael Trujillo, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find one employee who does not use the word “passionate” within the first sentence: “Creative” isn’t far behind.
With more than 30 years of winemaking experience in Napa Valley, Michael Trujillo has continually enhanced the quality of the wines at Sequoia Grove including the expansion of Estate vineyard holdings and creating Cambium, an iconic new wine in the Sequoia Grove portfolio.
Winemaker Molly Hill oversees all winemaking and production operations of the winery as well as helping with grower relations and recommendations in the vineyards. Top-quality winemaking and grape growing, with passion, is her goal every step of the way. For Hill, balance is of utmost importance in making a great wine. “Balance to me means nothing stands out—not alcohol, not tannin, not acid, nor fruit nor barrel.”
