Jeff Morgan
Daniel Moore

Jeff Morgan is probably the only commercial winemaker in America who has also had a parallel career as a wine writer and author. Formerly West Coast Editor for the Wine Spectator - a position he held for nearly five years - Jeff continued to write on wine for various publications until recently. He is the author of four books: Dean & Deluca, The Food and Wine Cookbook; The Working Parents Cookbook; Rosé, A Guide to the World's Most Versatile Wine; and most recently, The PlumpJack Cookbook, Recipes for Living Well. Jeff also teaches on occasion at the Culinary Institute of America's Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies in Napa Valley. Most people don't know that Jeff started out in the wine business as a cellar rat on Long Island, NY in 1988. He now lives in Napa Valley, where he makes Covenant and RED C Cabernet Sauvignon. Jeff is also co-owner, with Daniel Moore, of SoloRosa, America's only winery devoted to dry rosé and Zmor, which specializes in Pinot Noir and aromatic white wines.

Daniel Moore has been making wine in the Russian River Valley since 1983. He ran his own Z-Moore Winery from 1985 - 1995, where he pioneered Californian dry gewürztraminer. The original winemaker at Martinelli Winery, Daniel later moved to Lynmar Winery, where he worked as winemaker and general manager for 13 years. Moore met Morgan in 1996, when his partner-to-be sought him after tasting Lynmar's Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs during blind tastings at the Wine Spectator. At Lynmar Winery, Daniel was responsible for both vineyard and winery management as well as marketing and sales - tasks that prepared him eminently for his current winery and consulting work. Daniel is among the seminal winemakers who helped create the reputation enjoyed by Russian River Chardonnay and Pinot Noir today.

Rosé Avengers and Producers, AKA RAP, was co-founded by Morgan and Moore to raise the bar for dry rosé worldwide, and is supported by 50 winery members (www.rapwine.com).
