Chris Phelps, Winemaker

Chris Phelps is renowned as a winemaker who creates structured and ageworthy wines that reflect the vineyard where they’re grown. His own label, Ad Vivum, is a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the Sleeping Lady Vineyard in Yountville. Previously, Chris was the was the founding winemaker at Dominus, he oversaw the red wine program at Caymus Vineyards and was head winemaker at Swanson Vineyards. He studied enology at the Université de Bordeaux and holds a degree in fermentation from the University of California, Davis.

 

Steven Sorman, Artist

Steven Sorman is a family friend and prolific American artist who specializes in mixed media paintings, drawings and prints. His work is featured at major institutions including the Tate Modern in London and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York. We’re still a little stunned that Steven created the stylized diamond logo for Mueller Family Vineyards, and that a piece of his art adorns every bottle of our Cabernet Sauvignon.
