Cellar Team Raymundo Abarca and the Cellar Team
Raymundo, Ruben, and Jose Abarca, along with Salvador Rodriquez, have worked alongside me for almost thirty years – first in the cellar and vineyards at Kistler and now at Occidental.
Their skill, dedication, and pride in what they do is reflected in each bottle of Occidental that we produce together.
At harvest, they are often assisted by their brothers Ramon and Miguel Abarca, as well as Augustin Perez and Antonio Pizano.
Raymundo’s oldest son, Adrian, has joined his father after assisting Mark Bixler at Kistler Vineyards for several years.
