Ryan Bosc, Assistant Winemaker

Ryan Bosc is a southerner who longed for the vineyards of California. Born in North Carolina, Bosc was a film major at the University of North Carolina Greensboro. However, her passion for wine never relented. After a short stint working in film in Los Angeles, Bosc made her way to Paso Robles. A graduate of Allan Hancock College’s Viticulture and Enology program, she has worked several harvests in Paso Robles and in Margaret River, Western Australia. When not in the winery or vineyard, you’ll catch Adelaida’s enologist on a hiking trail, cooking, or discussing the latest films.
