Our Winemaker

Taylor Gibson

Taylor was introduced to winemaking with the harvest of 2011 when he joined Mica Raas at Myka Cellars. Eager to learn with a capable set of hands and Taylor wanted an opportunity to learn the ropes of the wine industry. This led to an apprenticeship with the winery, and in 2016, Taylor joined Mica in relocating to California’s beautiful Sierra Foothills when Myka Cellars moved to Placerville from Santa Cruz. Throughout the growth of the winery over the years, Taylor’s passion and personal investment in winemaking has also grown. At the beginning of 2019 Taylor achieved the position of Winemaker for Mediterranean Vineyards.

Taylor supports sustainable farming practices on more than 120 acres of vineyards in and around the Fair Play AVA in California’s beautiful El Dorado County. His work highlights El Dorado County as a premier winegrowing region of Mediterranean varietals.
