USC, MBA, Phi Beta Kappa, Army Infantry captain. Until recently owned the Ditch Witch dealerships for Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and Idaho. Dumb lucky guy who has been blessed and is now chasing his last rainbow of having a world-class winery and you can be the judge. Try the wines and tell us.

Winemaker, Anthony Yount.

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.”

Autumn Cone, wine club manager at Denner.

Autumn was born on the Central Coast back when it was more of a cow town then a wine destination. She spent her 20’s in Tennessee and New Orleans where she cultivated her love for wine and customer service working in fine dining. She is thrilled to utilize her background in hospitality and administration here at Denner “it feels like the best parts of every job I’ve loved rolled into one”. She loves being back adventuring on the Central Coast with her kiddo in tow. Enjoying the fruit of the vine with family and her “village”, in such close proximity to the ocean, is a recipe for the good life.
