Le Crema promoted Craig McAllister to Head Winemaker, who most recently served as Associate Winemaker. He first joined La Crema as the harvest enologist in 2007 and has been a steward of La Crema’s Monterey program, helping elevate the winery’s Sonoma Coast portfolio. He also helped developed La Crema’s single vineyard collection of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines. In his new role, he oversees all winemaking operations and builds the company’s portfolio ranging from the coastal regions as far north as Willamette Valley and as south as Arroyo Seco, California. McAllister plans to “give more focus” on raising the winery’s Monterey series.
