Angel Camarena

Vineyard manager Angel Camarena has overseen the viticulture at Hestan Vineyards since installing the first vines in 1996. Since then he has personally overseen every aspect of vineyard development and maintenance in addition to managing—with the help of his right-hand dog “Willie”—the balance of the estate’s 127 acre ranch property.

Prior to taking over the management of Hestan Vineyards, Angel worked 10 years at ATS Vineyard Services, developing and managing premium Napa Valley vineyards including Bryant Family Vineyards, Bravante Vineyards, Lail Vineyards and Crane Family Vineyards.

A native of Jalisco, Mexico, Angel began his career at Hyde Vineyards in Carneros after moving to California in 1987.
