Owner Winemaker Ken WornickNM:  Standing back and thinking about all this objectively, it seems to me that you have quite a knack for identifying seemingly disparate resources at your disposal — both tangible materials and intangible skills, talents, and experiences — and then figuring out a way to gather them together and construct a picture in your mind of some way that you can utilize and harmonize them together.  And you do this not only for your own advantage, but in a way that others can benefit from, as well.  After all, you've managed to map out a successful trajectory whose beginning and end points have absolutely no obvious connection: you went from geologist to winemaker, with several milestones in between, all of which now, after the fact, have actually connected quite nicely.

KW:  Well, I take that as a wonderful compliment!  Here's the thing: I'm really bad at math.  And people who are bad at math are typically intuitively able to connect pieces where others may not see relationships.

NM:  For someone so bad at math, you've definitely got one compelling equation of a business model here!  Let's drink to that!


Although he will, on occasion, don his former hat as vineyard developer under Post & Trellis Inc., the recent growth of his winery business and the subsequent demands on his winemaking talents have Ken Wornick devoting nearly all of his time and energy to La Honda Winery.  To learn more about the evolution of the winery or its handcrafted wine produced from select vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountain appellation, visit La Honda Winery online. v
