Carol Rounsaville
General Manager
General Manager carol@dennervineyards.com

Carol spent 18 years around fermentation before working for the winery. She started her management career at San Luis Sourdough, a local sourdough bread company. There she  discovered her passion – working for small, artisan-focused companies that make  really good things to eat or drink. After a few acquisitions and a Crown Victoria as a company car, she  chose to leave the bread business and search out the small company environment  again. After a few in-between positions, she found that perfect combination at  Denner.

 

 

Anthony Yount
Winemaker anthony@dennervineyards.com

As a kid Anthony always wanted to be a Cattle Rustler or a River Pirate. Unfortunately, neither of those professions were hiring when he graduated from Cal Poly. So Anthony “cut his teeth” in the wine industry here at Denner working as cellar rat for two vintages. Later, he moved up the road to become Cellar Master at Villa Creek, where he continued to work with Denner fruit. Coming full circle, Anthony returned to Denner as Winemaker in 2009. His winemaking philosophy is simple: “If you provide the grapes and wine with an environment where they can thrive and express themselves, they will do just that.
 

 

Aron Navarez
Vineyard Manager aron@dennervineyards.com

Born in the village of El Durazno in Durango, Mexico,  Aron moved to Paso Robles in 1992 at age 14. As an early teen Aron worked in vineyards by acquiring an ID that “slightly” exaggerated his age to 18.  By 1998, after working at Tablas Creek and Glenrose Vineyards, he took over management of the Rosette Vineyard (now Derby). Aron worked alongside John Alban for 6-years at Rosette before becoming manager at Denner Vineyards in 2004. Aron has developed the estate into a prized site for premium Rhone and Bordeaux varieties. He and his wife Yaraceth enjoy life in Paso Robles with their sons Aron Jr. and Jared.

Ashleigh Bertoni
Marketing Director ashleigh@dennervineyards.com

Ashleigh’s parents, Jeff and Colleen Bertoni, grew up  here in Paso Robles and loved their country roots so much they decided to raise  Ashleigh (and brother Travis) right at home on the Central Coast. With her diploma from Paso High and Bachelors Degree in Business Management from Cal  Poly Ashleigh exemplifies all things good about “Paso grown”. Knowing that the  West Paso wine region is “where-its-at” she began in our tasting room in 2009  and quickly demonstrated her natural leadership skills. Today she splits her role between Marketing, Human Resources and overall customer bliss.

My motto comes from Albert Schweitzer “…the ones among us who will be really  happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” I spent his early life in Canada, the US, Mexico and England but I fell in love with the Central  Coast on my first visit over 20 years ago. I moved here in 2002, believing it to be the ideal place to raise my young children.
