Antonia de Heinrich – Banshee Wines, Sonoma, CA

Antonia joined the Banshee team in July 2018. Her appreciation for wine was prompted in Spain, and evolved during wine immersion courses at the New York French Culinary Institute. Antonia jumped into the wine industry working in the cellar and vineyards at wineries on the North Fork of Long Island, Marlborough and Napa. She completed the Certificate in Winemaking from UC Davis.

In 2011, she accepted a job with Constellation Brands as Cellar Supervisor at Hogue Cellars in Central Washington, and, one harvest later, the role of Assistant Winemaker at Ravenswood in Sonoma. At Ravenswood, Antonia was responsible for cellar and day-to-day operations until her promotion to Winemaker in 2016 when her responsibilities expanded to sourcing and blending for all Ravenswood wines.

Antonia lives in Sonoma County and is an avid traveler and outdoorsman.
