Get to know us through this new series as we celebrate our employee owners who embody the Oliver Winery core values.
Meet Justin Graham, Cellar Master, and this month’s V.I.O. (Very Important Owner).
Justin has been at Oliver Winery since 2003. When he started, he didn’t know he’d be spending so much time with us (thank goodness he stuck around!). Justin met his wife here, became an employee owner, and today as our Cellar Master, he expects quality and gets things done in the cellar and while managing the bottling line. He’ll tell you he was “just in the right place at the right time,” but that’s his unfailing humility talking.
“’Knowledge and perfection’ are just a few of the qualities he brings to the team,” says winemaker Dennis Dunham, “if Justin does something, it will be done correctly. That is absolutely critical for the complexity of what we do in winemaking.”
