After working as a chemist for 9 years, Jason opted out of laboratory confinement to roam freely in the winery cellar. Originally from Baltimore, Jason moved to California in 2009 to attend UC Davis. After graduation, Jason continued working in California, eventually joining the Craig Crew as Assistant Winemaker in July 2015 to work side by side with winemaker Stephen Tebb. With the departure of Tebb in January of 2020, Jason was named Winemaker, an continues to guide the Craig portfolio of wines. When not attending to the Craig wines, Jason can be found racking up miles running the streets and trails around the Valley, making far too much hard apple cider, and contemplating the performance of his hometown Baltimore sports franchises.
