Jean Hoefliger, a passionate Swiss talent, has been Alpha Omega's winemaker since the winery's inception in 2006. Pairing his global winemaking experience gained working for the esteemed estates of Chateau Lynch-Bages and Chateau Carbonnieux in Bordeaux, Meerlust Inc., in South Africa, Fonjallaz S.A. in Switzerland and Hartford Court in Sonoma's Russian River with his formal education, Jean brought his skills and enthusiasm to Napa Valley.
Seduced by California's diverse soil and ability to express his creativity, Jean planted himself at Newton Vineyard in Napa Valley's Spring Mountain where he spent five years as winemaker until plucked by newcomer Alpha Omega. Part artist, part mad scientist, Jean helped the fledgling winery that set out to be recognized as one of the great wine estates in the world quickly make a name for itself.
Jean's zeal, knowledge, innate ability and scientific training puts him in a unique position to take the best grapes of Napa Valley and transform them into award-winning and critically-acclaimed wines for Alpha Omega.
