The Winemaking Process: Aristeo Garcia Martinez, Cellar Master

Aristeo “Art” Martinez, Cellar Master – busy at the winemaking process

Aristeo Martinez is the assistant cellar manager for Keenan Winery. “Art” has been a member of the Keenan team since 2003 and is a recognized “jack of all trades.” He can usually be found at the heart of the winemaking process —racking barrels, assisting with harvest and crush, driving the forklift, unloading bins, and providing support in the transfer of wine to barrels following fermentation. He is a big fan of Keenan Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Originally from Michoacán, Mexico, Art and his wife Maria live in the Napa Valley with their daughter Angela.
