Born in San Francisco and raised in Napa Valley, John Freeman was destined to be in the wine industry. John's initial work in California included seven years at Franciscan Vineyards and an additional five spent as the Cellar Master at Miner Family.

Charmed by the Walla Walla Valley, John decided to move to Washington in 2002. He started at Waterbrook Winery in January 2003 as Assistant Winemaker and was promoted to Winemaker in January 2005.

John wholeheartedly believes in Waterbrook's mission to produce premium, value wines for all to enjoy. From vine to bottle, he and his team carefully manage every step of the winemaking process to ensure the overall complexity, balance and consistent quality that Waterbrook wines are known for.
Thursday night you will have a chance to meet John and taste his outstanding wines- paired with cheeses and light appetizers- in a casual, relaxed atmosphere(flight cost will be $10/person). Join us!
