About: Proprietor / Vintner, Frank D. Puzio, Bachelor of Science Chemistry, Doctorate Optometry

Over the last 20+ years, I have refined my wine making skills through the study of advanced enology literature, attending educational opportunities at national symposiums and from valuable hands-on lessons learned from yearly wine making. The historic wine making principals our ancestors employed, persist to this day; however modern chemistry, more efficient equipment, sterilization compliance, barrel aging at consistent temperature/humidity controls, and the ability to reproduce successful techniques allow us to confidently produce wines that can rival the best of the best. Often life tends to return us to our past interests, and in my case, it has allowed me resurrect skills learned from my undergraduate degree in chemistry. On a lighter note, the only thing my doctorate in optometry adds to my wine making capability is my ability to focus!
