It Takes a Wine Village to make every bottle of inspired J, especially during harvest. We are so appreciative of our adoring J Fans that we want to share the hard-working J Harvest Team Members that bring your favorite bottles of J to your table for sharing with family and friends.
J Team Member: Genaro
Position at J: Production Worker
Years working on the J Team: 9 Months
Favorite J Wine: J Cuvée 20
Genaro’s J production team members inspire him every day. Genaro says, “there is such great teamwork at J and everyone makes me feel like I am part of the entire J family, it makes me feel valuable to be a part of J.”
His coworkers view Genaro as a very hard production worker who can be quite funny, which helps the day at J go by without a hitch. Genaro says, “J is a very fun environment to work in, I am a hands-on type of person so I can learn new procedures easily which helps out the entire production team.” Genaro says he loves working at J because “it has a great family feeling among all the J team members.”
When Genaro is not at J working hard, he loves to go bass fishing with his son at Lake Sonoma in Healdsburg – “This is my favorite enjoyment with my son.”
Genaro has never worked at a winery that makes sparkling wine and is amazed at the long hours that go into producing sparkling wine. Genaro says, “the J Cuvee 20 is my favorite J wine, so being involved in the disgorging process with the J Cuvee 20 is very cool. The best part is when the crown cap and lees are removed without spilling any sparkling wine.”
Genaro may be the new J kid on the block, but he is a sparkling success and an adored and valued J team member. Cheers to you Genaro!
