In addition to the alliance, Dylan Sheldon will be accepting the position of Production Manager at Inspiration, assisting Jon Phillips with winemaking and managing all of the custom crush clients.

After working alongside winemakers in Monterey, Australia, New Zealand and France, Dylan Sheldon and his wife Tobe founded Sheldon winery in 2003. Dylan looks forward to “...fostering a healthy and creative atmosphere that fuels continued education.
