Mark grew up helping his mother make meals for their family of 10 children. Every meal was the size of a dinner party,
and it seemed natural for him to move from the family kitchen to the restaurants of Northern California. He joined J Vineyards
& Winery in 2003, and loves changing the menu regularly to reflect the freshest local ingredients. Some of his favorites
include Prawns with Spicy Peanut Sauce paired with J
Pinot Gris, or Braised Painted Hills Beef Short Rib Parmentier with J Pinot Noir.
His favorite part of the job? Watching a guest take a bite of his food, a sip of our wine — and smile with pleasure.
