Bryant Estate appoints Carothers as winemaker
Napa Valley producer Bryant Estate has appointed Kathryn Carothers as its winemaker.
Carothers worked at Bryant from 2012-2016 in various roles and was most recently winemaker at ADAMVS in Howell Mountain.
Bettina Bryant, owner and president, said: “KK’s [Carother’s] return to Bryant Estate is a wonderful homecoming. We welcome her back to the dedicated and close-knit team that contributes to the many vibrant yet meticulous processes that make Bryant so distinct.
“KK has a deep understanding and respect for our tradition and precision in winemaking, and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with organic and biodynamic methodologies. KK shares our ethos that terroir should be our guiding principle and that we are stewards of the land for posterity.”
Carothers added: “Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to hold positions around the world that gave me valuable insight into the many approaches to winemaking within the industry.
“The vision set forth for Bryant Estate by Don and Bettina Bryant is one that is truly exceptional and I am honoured to take the helm as winemaker during a time when the winery prepares to celebrate such a special milestone.”
