Laely Heron, one of California’s trailblazing winemakers, celebrates her 25 years of Heron Wines! Laely spent her childhood traveling the globe with her adventurer parents and went to college in Colorado where she had an opportunity to travel to France in her junior year. While in France, she found her passion for wine and enrolled at the Institute of Enology in Bordeaux. When she returned from France she became the first American employee of Australia’s Lindemans Wines, started a wine import company in Denmark, opened a restaurant, taught wine classes and began studies to become a master of wine. In 1995 she moved back to San Francisco to establish Heron Wines. Laely Heron has accomplished many things in her life and producing wines of exceptional value and quality is one of them!
