Meet the Staff at the Wetzel Estate Winery
At Wetzel Estate you will find winemakers and tasting room managers who are knowledgeable and committed to their craft.
Owner and Winemaker
Since the inception of the winery, Andreas has been producing award-winning wines. He emphasizes pairing wine with food in a way that enhances the experience of both. His philosophy has always been to provide premium, limited-production wines at a great value.
Mark began his winemaking career in California in the laboratory performing wine analytics. From there he moved to upstate New York where he developed his practical winemaking skills. In his current role, Mark is responsible for every step of the winemaking process, from grape to bottle.
Nate oversees all cellar operations. His attention to detail contributes to the consistent premium quality of our wines.
Tasting Room Manager & Wine Club Manager
Krista manages the day to day operations of the Tasting Room and manages the Wine Club. She has a passion for people and when you add wine, it’s a win! She has been in the wine industry for over 5 years. When she isn’t in the Tasting Room serving wine and visiting with guests, she can be found working behind the scenes on staff training, social media, marketing, and event planning.
Katie strives to advance the consumer experience by finding opportunities to share our wines. The availability of these award-winning, quality wines offered under the Wetzel Estate Wines umbrella continues to grow across the United States and internationally.
Kim can be seen in the tasting room but spends most of her time behind the scenes managing the day-to-day administrative responsibilities that keep the winery running efficiently.
Juan oversees all vineyard operations, from pruning the vines to harvesting the ripe, delicious fruit.
