Ricardo Juarez is the assistant winemaker helping Parke in the magic of changing grapes into wine. When 11 years old, he came from Mexico to be with his father Agustin who was already a longtime vineyardist at Hafner Vineyard. Ricardo's viticulture and winemaking courses add depth to his hands-on experience in the cellar. Always of good humor, he is willing and able to take on any winery task and do it well. A father of three, Ricardo enjoys cooking as a hobby.
