National Sales Manager
Certified with the Court of Master Sommeliers, Patrick has been in the wine industry for over 20 years. His passion for wine was ignited when he attended school in southern Germany for culinary arts and hospitality. Prior to joining Sojourn, Patrick was most recently the Senior Brand Manager as a consultant for Boich Family Cellar, a luxury Napa Valley property, where he oversaw and managed their wholesale partners.
Patrick began his career in wine working for the Robert Mondavi Family of Wines as assistant general manager and assistant winemaker. He worked under the guidance of pioneering winemaker Ken Brown to craft small lots of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from their estate vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley of Santa Barbara County. Patrick left the Mondavi Family to start his own private label of small production California wines in partnership with a Hong Kong-based distribution corporation. He sold his interest in the company before joining Trione Vineyards and Winery in Sonoma County as national sales manager for the family’s newly launched wine brand.
Patrick lives in Sacramento with his wife and two dogs, where he enjoys cooking and the local music scene.
