I and my Wife Olga Fernandez are childhood sweethearts who grew up in the same town in Morelia Michoacan Mexico.
 
We were both students when we met. I was 16 and she was 15. We immigrated to America in 1985 and have lived in Sonoma County ever since. I earned a degree in agricultural studies in Mexico, I worked at Korbel Champagne Cellars from 1985 to 2003.
 
I began as a laborer and worked my way up to wine technician. Ultimately my job was to directly assist the winemaker, following the wine from the vineyard to the crush, fermentation and aging. I fell in love with the whole process, we wanted the opportunity to make our Own label. In 2004 we opened the doors of our Guerrero Fernandez Winery.
 
We take pride in having a boutique winery that produces small lots of wine. It’s important to love what you do and we have a great passion for winemaking. We really believe in our product.
