Santa Lucia Highlands, Monterey County
Andy originally dreamed of being a Park Ranger when he graduated with a degree in Natural Resources Management from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Though he never did get to work in forestry, he has been able to put his degree to good use managing the vineyards and surrounding conserved habitat areas at Hahn Estates. Andy has been farming in California for over 24 years including orchards, table grapes, and now wine grapes. After spending many seasons in the vineyard, he now takes photographs year round. As he says, “If it’s in, on, or around the vineyard, I’ll shoot it”.
