Winemaker, Artezin Wine
A native Californian, Randle earned an M.S. in Viticulture from UC at Davis. After stints with several of Napa Valley’s elite wineries, Randle joined The Hess Collection in 1983 where he has continued to hone and refine his winemaking style to create elegant wines with great complexity, depth and structure. With the start-up of Artezin Wines, under The Hess Collection, Randle’s vision is to honor the art of making Zinfandel from old vine plantings and handcrafting wines that express their true varietal characteristics. Randle and his lovely wife MaryLee look forward to sailing the entire 14 night cruise with you!
