Frederick Ammons has been the winegrower at Rudd Estate since the 2013 vintage. With a masters in viticulture and enology from the University of Bordeaux, extensive experience in Burgundy, he believes that great wines are the result of an agricultural endeavor and that farming is the central tool in producing wines that express a noble terroir. Every vintage is a new story, a new education and new reward.
