Los Olivos, CA (PRWEB) August 24, 2005
The Fess Parker Winery & Vineyard today announces the appointment of Mikael Sigouin to Assistant Winemaker. On the verge of a potentially record breaking harvest, this young enologist will help in overseeing the everyday operations of the winery as part of a maverick team lead by Fess ParkerÂs Head Winemaker, Blair Fox.
A native of Hawaii, Sigouin was raised with a healthy appreciation for European wines. But it wasnÂt until 1996 while on a fateful trip to the Napa Valley that he discovered his true passion for winemaking.
In 1999, Sigouin began his career at Beckmen Vineyards where he helped to increase sales on both the marketing and winemaking fronts. He began working harvest and in only three years was promoted to Assistant Winemaker.
In the cellar he fosters a similar pioneering spirit to that of the Parker winemaking team, embracing techniques used by the French masters in the RhÃ´ne Valley. SigouinÂs meticulous attention to detail has earned praise from wine critics, including James Laube and Robert Parker.
