Lawrence, Nieves Cortez and Romel Rivera. Although they arrived in different areas of California, the friendship began in the little town of Calistoga, the heart of the Napa Valley. Their knowledge base of wine and vineyards started by working in a vineyard tending to the grapes. They were blessed with the opportunity to continue their wine education. Lawrence's hard work eventually earned him the position of Cellar Master at Clos Pegase. Romel along with Nieves, who are both cousins, started their career at Hans Kornell Champagne Cellars. Romel eventually landed a position at Pride Mountain Vineyards, under the tutelage of winemaker Bob Foley. Years later, Lawrence joined suit and worked alongside with Romel.
