Jeremy Leffert, Winemaker

Jeremy Leffert moved to California after completing his degree in Environmental Studies with a focus in Natural History from the University of Vermont. Immediately after moving to Santa Barbara, Leffert discovered wine and felt drawn to the vineyards of the Central Coast. A meeting with Cal Poly San Luis Obispo professor Dr. Keith Patterson, inspired Jeremy to enroll in the university’s Masters program in Crop Science with a focus in Viticulture. Leffert strove to perfect his viticultural knowledge and abilities under the mentorship of Dr. Patterson.

Jeremy was the winemaker for Hearst Ranch Winery from its inception in 2009 to 2014, when he assumed the role of Director of Winemaking at The Workshop in San Luis Obispo. It was at The Workshop that he met Mindy and Chris. Jeremy has been an avid guitarist since childhood and lives in San Luis Obispo with his wife, Melissa.

Mindy Oliver, Owner

An appreciation for the beauty of nature and how it can enrich our lives is the unifying theme that led Mindy inevitably to produce premium wine on California’s Central Coast. From her education in Fine Art at the University of California, Santa Cruz, to her work as a commercial artist, and Chief Creative Officer for a technology agency, Mindy’s focus on beauty and design in its many forms has been paramount.

After moving to the Central Coast, Mindy began to experiment with different winemaking techniques. She studied the science, history and artistry of the craft. Her unique blend of appreciation for art, keen sense of design, and savvy understanding of business, ensure that the quality of each vineyard will show its true colors in each bottle of Croma Vera wine.
