Karen & Nate’s love of wine began with food, having spent their late 20’s and early 30’s eating and drinking through New York City’s seemingly unending cadre of delicious restaurants. This budding worldview came into full bloom whilst backpacking around the world after their wedding. After 20+ years in business, Nate found himself studying wine far more than his actual career, so why not pitch the relative safety of corporate life and start at the bottom of the winery ladder cleaning tanks and scrubbing floors? Karen and Nate moved their family back to her native California, where he started working his second harvest, which eventually led to a full-time position with the Napa Valley winery where Nate met Matt Nagy.


Matt is also a bit of a wine outsider, having worked his way around the world from Long Island to New Zealand and back to Sonoma and Napa, where he has worked alongside two of the best – Thomas Rivers Brown and Steve Matthiasson. Along the way, he started up his own label, Benevolent Neglect, through which he often urges his customers to “Drink it and like it”. Sound advice.
