He brings with him extensive education and experience in fruit production and ampelography (identification of different grape cultivars). His career has spanned all facets of grapevine production with widespread experience in production, management and sales. Sebastian will be a leading contributor to the Sunridge sales team.
Sebastian’s education began at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso in Valparaiso, Chile where he became an Agronomist Engineer, specializing in fruit production. He furthered his education with ENTAV-INRA in Montpellier, France and at California’s Foundation Plant Services at the University of California, Davis. He speaks fluent Spanish, French and English.
He has a broad understanding of all vineyard and nursery operations. His background includes nursery and vineyard consulting as well as the management of vineyards and nurseries in Chile, France, Mexico, and California. His focus at Sunridge will be to continue the Sunridge goals of increasing our customers’ knowledge of vine selection and planting while emphasizing Sunridge’s top-quality customer service.
Sebastian is looking forward to working with Sunridge Nurseries and the Stoller family as he feels “family owned and administered” means great customer service by placing vineyard operators first. He knows that the skills and experience that he brings to Sunridge Nursery will help the company continue to be on the cutting edge of innovative grape growing, nursery production and customer service.
Born, raised and educated in Valparaiso, Chile; Sebastian currently calls Vacaville, California his home with his wife and family.
