Winemaker Alfredo "Freddy" Arredondo

Alfredo "Freddy" Arredondo is a graduate of the Walla Walla Community College Institute for Enology and Viticulture. Freddy's winemaking experience includes working as a cellar master at Cougar Crest Winery in Walla Walla. Prior to becoming a winemaker, Freddy was a professional chef. He started his culinary career at age 13, cooking in his family's restaurant. It was while working and attending culinary classes in Arizona that he was first introduced to wine. At that point in his life wine was a "mysterious, wonderful elixir" that he used to complement his dishes.

Once Freddy completed culinary school, he worked as a chef in restaurants in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and on a cruise ship in Hawaii. However, he was drawn to Italy and moved there when he was awarded a highly-competitive scholarship to attend the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners. It was in Italy where two life-changing things occurred: he met his future wife Carrie Bryan--daugher of Vince & Carol Bryan--and he became completely passionate about wine.

"I am excited to create wines that marry beautifully and seamlessly with foods," said Freddy." I look forward to the amazing things that are on the horizon."
