Jonathan Walters is the newest member of our management team. He joined our team mid 2014 and in January 2015 he took over as our Director of Farming. While he may be new to Brassfield, he is not new to our county or the Lake County Wine scene. Jonathan worked his way through Texas A&M in the hospitality industry at a fine dining establishment. While there he had the honor of working at the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library. Jonathan honed his skills serving high-ranking government and business dignitaries in addition to celebrities. During this time he gained valuable service experience that he has carried with him throughout his career. His service in the hospitality industry and his introduction to fine wines forged the path to his studies in Agronomy and Horticulture at Texas A&M. Jonathan arrived in Lake County in 2009 and quickly became involved in many aspects of the wine community. Jonathan gained some of his experience working for Robinson Lake Vineyards. Additionally, he sits on the Executive Board of both the Lake County Wine Grape Commission and the Lake County Winery Association.
His high standards, attention to detail, enthusiasm, exceptional work ethic, willingness to pitch in wherever needed, and contagious smile are one of the many reasons we are happy Jonathan chose to join our team. When not at work, Jonathan enjoys spending family time with his wife, Rebecka and daughters, Hailey and Norah.
