Michael moved to the area back in 2000 and, like many local residents, caught the incurable wine bug. His adoration for Sonoma County is as deeply rooted as its vineyards. So much, in fact, he rarely ventures outside its borders and refers to Santa Rosa as "The City." When he isn't chasing his two boys he's showcasing his talents as part of the winemaking team at the iconic Ridge Vineyards in Healdsburg.
