Beginning in April, 2017, John Moynier became the sole winemaker for Purple Heart Wines. John developed the 2015 blend and his name will appear on the label for this vintage. He served in the US Air Force from 1968 to 1972 where he was a Squadron Training NCO. He is a graduate of the University of California, Davis, with a Bachelor of Fermentation Sciences and has been a winemaker at C. Mondavi & Family since 1985.
John’s dedication to winemaking, his military service and his passion for Purple Heart Wines are aligned with the objectives of the Purple Heart Foundation. These qualities make him a natural fit to lead the effort to produce our wonderful Bordeaux style Purple Heart red blend wine.
