A California native, Aaron dreamed of becoming a doctor before he found his calling in wine while earning his Bachelor of Science in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior at the University of California, Davis. This burgeoning curiosity inspired Aaron to become a harvest intern in Napa Valley immediately following his undergraduate graduation in 2000. This first harvest led to a second in San Luis Obispo before Aaron returned to UC Davis to earn a Master of Science in Viticulture and Enology.

Growing up with a French father, Danielle spent summers as a child in France, where she learned about her family's winemaking history. Her great-grandfather was the last in a long line of ancestors who owned the Cyrot Vineyard in Burgundy's prestigious Côte de Beaune. Danielle had no plans to carry on her family's winemaking legacy when she enrolled at the University of California, Davis; however, that quickly changed when she took an introductory winemaking class and knew she had found her calling.
