Principal - Raymond E. Signorello Jr.
Ray's higher calling as a wine enthusiast came to him in Napa Valley, during the mid 1980s, when he and his father began the successful Signorello Vineyards. Since then Ray has never looked back. Today his broadened interests include Signorello Consulting, a winery and vineyard consulting practice, as well as Evolution Fine Wines, a distributor which Ray is proud to have founded. Ray enjoys helping fellow vintners with their business needs, and bringing fine wines to market is almost as enjoyable as growing and making the wines itself.
Born in San Francisco, Ray was raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, where the Signorello family continues to maintain their permanent home. He divides his time between San Francisco, Napa Valley and Vancouver, but sets aside frequent times for business-related travel and the opportunity to keep connected with the larger world of winemaking.
