Ricardo Ayala

August 23, 2022

Ayala joined the Keenan Winery as Cellar Master Aristeo’s right-hand man in 2022. Before this, Ricardo worked for six years in the industry. If you pop into the cellar, you may find him cleaning barrels, sterilizing hoses, or washing out stainless steel wine tanks. If asked about his favorite wines, he’ll say the Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and Keenan Mailbox Merlot. At home, when not in the cellar, Ricardo and his wife enjoy doting on their new son, who was born in 2022.
