THE PRODUCTION GUY
Chad joined the staff in 2012 soon after we moved into our present location as our production and maintenance specialist. A longtime friend of “Big Mike”, Chad is a Mc-Giver type who can fabricate and fix anything and is a perfect and valuable asset to the Grape Expectations’ team.
Between Mike and Chad, they can fix everything-an absolute necessity in any production facility.
Chad was born in Orange County, raised in the Salt Lake City area, and is a graduate of Valley High school in Sandy, Utah, class of 1992.
He was a 15 year journeyman carpenter and an eight year commercial steel stud, drywall and concrete specialist. He also was a small business owner specializing in laser toner and printer maintenance.
Chad, the second of nine children, resides in Henderson with his wife of 15 years and two children.
Chad attends pertinent seminars and classes at University of California-Davis school of Enology and Viticulture and the Unified Wine Symposium in Sacramento and other wine production related conventions, meetings and seminars.
