Victor De La Luz, Winemaker

Victor De La LuzVictor de la Luz serves as our full time winemaker, along with Rick Johnson.  He came to Walla Faces in late 2012 from DiStefano Winery in Woodinville, WA, where he helped to create many of their award-winning wines.

Victor is excited about working with Walla Faces, as now he gets to see the grapes from the vineyard to the barrel.  In addition, he is ecstatic to learn yet another approach to winemaking by working with Chris Camarda.

Victor has been an essential part of our transition to our production facility/winery. He has cared for our gorgeous barrels and tanks like a loving parent. His diligence, flair for winemaking and contagious smile create the perfect storm out at the winery.
