“Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

- Mark Twain- 

Raised among the vines in Oakville, the heart of the Napa Valley, Bridget picked grapes, stomped them, made “wine” ….. all at the age of 9! While the first batch may not have turned out so well, many harvests later Bridget is crafting some fantastic wine. Through the mentorship of family and friends, Bridget honed her craft beyond the books and started production of her own label, Courtesan, in 2004. “There is something special about making wine from the land you grew-up playing in; they hold a special place in my heart.”  – Bridget Raymond, winemaker
