Wesley RaineriCellar Master

Name: Wesley Raineri
Hometown: Oakland, California, but I have lived in Napa most of my life.
Been at Miner since: July 1999
Why the wine industry? Why not? I came here to work a harvest when I was younger to see what it was all about and really liked it. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. 
Favorite part of your job: Mostly it’s all the great people I work with. It never gets boring, no two days are exactly the same, and there are always new things to learn and problems to solve.
Last meal: If I know it’s going be my last meal, I probably won’t have much of an appetite.
Little known fact about you: You don’t want to know. That’s why it’s little known. JK
If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Teleportation. If I could fly really fast, that would be okay also.
You love: Nature, mountain biking and all things awesome.
You hate: Headaches, traffic, terrible people, spam calls and scam texts.
Hidden talent: Hacky sack
Favorite wine/varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
You’re a die hard: 80’s Heavy Metal fan
Best quote: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” – Ferris Bueller
