Our Team

Founding Winemaker

Bob Blue

Bob is a pioneer in the organic wine arena and Bonterra’s founding winemaker, with deep roots in Mendocino’s vineyards.

Beyond Bonterra, Bob is also a passionate table tennis player. So passionate, in fact, that he has a table tennis robot that has trained him to play ambidextrously!

Lead Winemaker

Jeff Cichocki

Jeff joined the Bonterra team in 2007 and has been an incredible – and ongoing – wealth of knowledge and inspiration for our group.

Beyond Bonterra, Jeff’s three desert island songs are High and Dry – Radiohead, Simple Song – Shins, and Do You Realize? – Flaming Lips (all enjoyed with a cold beer, of course).

Beyond Bonterra, Matt’s signature dish is his famous spaghetti which he enjoys preparing with a refreshing beer in hand!
