Introducing winemaker Ryan Deovlet...
Thoughtful, artistic, and detailed, our head winemaker Ryan Deovlet takes our Central Coast grapes and turns them into delightfully distinct wines.
Ryan's winemaking background is diverse, with experiences working in Australia and New Zealand. From his travels, Ryan has gained firsthand experience in the vineyards and working crush, all while learning from renowned winemakers.
Upon returning to California in 2005, Ryan took a position with one of the Central Coast's most legendary winemakers, Stephen Dooley, owner/winemaker of Stephen Ross Wine Cellars. Ryan attributes his foundation in oenology and in the cellar to his time at Stephen Ross. Furthering his education and experience, Ryan took the assistant winemaking position at Red Car Wine Company in 2007. While there, he was able to learn from consulting winemaker David Ramey and top viticulturists Dr. Daniel Roberts and Ulises Valdez.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of this significant long term project with roots in the Edna Valley, and for an exciting new chapter in my life and career”
With a wealth of knowledge and experience under his belt, Ryan has begun the process of making several new and distinct wines to complement the already well received Biddle Ranch Vineyard wines. From Ryan’s careful selection of premium grapes to the final varietals and his formulating of new blends, Ryan's wine making process perfectly aligns with the philosophies and tastes of Biddle Ranch Vineyards.
Ryan, his wife Shauna, and their sons Jack and Lou live in Los Osos along with their dog, Bruce Wayne.
