Joel Peterson has been the Winemaker of Ravenswood since 1976 and is a founding member of ZAP, having served as two-time President. Joel unwittingly embarked on his winemaking apprenticeship at the age of ten when he began tasting with the San Francisco Wine Sampling Club, organized and operated by his father. Joel works with 100+ growers who provide grapes for Ravenswood annually, consulting on all aspects of vineyard management. Joel relates equally well to the poetry and the product that forms the basis of winemaking today. ZAP is fortunate to have had Joel moderate the Flights event since 2010.
