Winemaker

Growing up in the Mojave Desert, Rebecca’s affinity for the natural world was stoked on long hikes with her father, who also instilled in her an appreciation of biology and botany.  After studying winemaking at both UC Davis and The University of Adelaide, Rebecca apprenticed in Burgundy and Australia’s Yarra Valley and spent several years at highly respected California wineries such as Marcassin, Williams Selyem and Schramsberg. Rebecca joined Kelly Fleming Wines in 2011 and has served as winemaker since 2013. Working closely with Vineyard Manager Mike Wolf and consulting winemaker Francoise Peschon, she applies a thoughtful, hands-on yet non-interventionist approach that reflects a respect for nature, farming and the vineyards with which she works.
