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!

Director of Winemaking

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).

A passion for organic and sustainable practices infuses every aspect of Sebastian Donoso’s work as a winemaker for Bonterra Organic Vineyards.

Director of Organic & Biodynamic Vineyards

Joseph Brinkley

Joseph is really passionate about farming and he truly believes in Biodynamic. “I’m enjoying learning the details of farming land, including best practices for compost and soil management—and gaining insight to anything that contributed to the overall health of the farm.”
