Meet the Team: Jamie Garza

Welcome to our “Meet the Team” blog post series! Each month, we’ll shine the spotlight on a different team member bringing you insider scoop on all things wine. From their personal favorites to unbeatable pairings and even tips on maximizing your wine experience, they’ve got you covered. Up next, our General Manager, Jamie Garza!

What’s your favorite wine that we make and why?  

I absolutely love our Sparkling Brut. Not only is it delicious, light, and refreshing, but really, no celebration is complete and nothing quite says “fun times ahead” like a glass of sparkling!

What’s your favorite event that we host here and why is it your favorite?  

I love when we host Temple Grandin. Autism awareness is close to my heart and it’s a special time for the community to be together, share stories and experiences as well as connect with each other.

What do your days off look like?  

I live in Idaho, so days off in the spring and summer look like hiking, biking, hot springs, farmers markets, rodeos, antiquing, and exploring.

Which label design is your favorite?  

I am biased, but Gigi is my favorite label. That art was created by my daughter and I am incredibly proud of what was organically grown as a result of her art. The Give Back and all that it represents is very special.

What do you think sets CFV apart from other wineries in the area? 

I think what sets us apart is our drive, our passion, and our intention when building relationships with each other and the community. Nothing we do here is by accident or by happenstance. Every event and every idea comes from a place of passion and creativity that is first cultivated and honored in the workspace. We are thoughtful about our planning and execution and we have seen the fruit that shows that our intentionality and passion is largely known throughout the community.
