TASTING | Neil Redmond of Beckmen Vineyards

Neil Redmond of Beckmen Vineyards is originally from Hawaii and now makes his home in Los Olivos, CA. In 1998 Neil left Oahu for the Central Coast of California, where he earned his degree in Environmental Horticultural Science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. In 2008 after several years of developing a passion for wine and his local wine palate, Neil took a weekend harvest position at Beckmen. It didn’t take long to know that the wine business was for him!  In 2012, Neil was offered a full-time winery position at Beckmen Vineyards and has not looked back.  Neil was recently promoted to Steve Beckmen’s “right hand man” and holds the title of Sales & Education Manager. Neil has now worked nine straight harvests at Beckmen Vineyards (5 full-time), managed Beckmen’s Estate tasting room, and currently does regional market sales in five states.  He is excited to visit the Bay Area and have the opportunity toshare the Beckmen Vineyards story as well as pour their lineup of delicious Estate grown wines for you!
