Our very own homegrown hero, Tim, the Head Distiller of Napa Valley Distillery has worked his way up as part of the team to where he now leads Production and Distillation.
From the Napa Valley, Tim has enjoyed a life outside of wine, working in craft breweries before landing at Napa Valley Distillery. He has grown into our Head Distiller position and has brought his own flair and passion to the program. From his unique methods, to his understanding of the process, he is a key figure at Napa Valley Distillery.
He can be found in our Production area most days, with a grin and a joke, while listening to music. Always willing to answer a question for those on the tour, or to talk shop with folks in the Hollywood Room Bar, even found at the Oxbow Tasting Room answering questions, say hi to our Head Distiller next time you visit.
Carlos Sac is the first and longest employee at Napa Valley Distillery. He has been a large part of the family and has had a hand in making every product we have released.
Originally from San José La Máquina in Guatamala, Carlos came to us with a wealth of experience having been a production manager before coming to Napa. He brought that experience to our team and has been a key figure in our success since joining the team. When he's not at the Distillery, you'll find him on the pitch coaching men's soccer, or cooking for his wife and kids at home.
Carlos is always willing to help with all aspects of the day to day operations. You can find him in the production area filling barrels, proofing alcohol, bottling and labeling or lending a helping hand to any that need it, Carlos is a shining example of what Napa Valley Distillery stands for.

Bar Club Manager
A new addition to our team with a long history in the Napa Valley, James has taken on our Bar Club Manager role at Napa Valley Distillery and helped it grow.
From working in the top restaurants of the Napa Valley, to the top hotels, and then finishing the trifecta with his work in wine, James has brought a quarter century of Napa Valley hospitality experience to our team to lead the Bar Club. A 4th generation local, he is also a Professional Photographer when he isn't at his "adult job" with us, taking picture of Motorcycles on and off the track with local companies as well as professional racing organizations.
You'll find him in his cave upstairs, plotting world domination and future projects for our distilling team, designing and fulfilling our Ecommerce, or assisting customers. You'll find him downstairs as well, helping with production, plotting world domination again, or adding to the guest experience.
Our Head Mixologist is a real mover and shaker. Antonia came to us 2 years ago and has not just survived the pandemic with us, but has grown our Hollywood Room bar into the elevated experience you enjoy today.
With her history in the Napa Valley, she brought not only her experience, but her amazing palette and mixology talents. Creating most of the drinks featured in our Bar Club releases and on our menus, she also is able to put a twist on the classics to make them entirely new drinks again.
When not behind the bar, she is at home with her family and studying to finish a degree. She is also working on our new ArBaretum location where we will feature Gin Cocktails as well as other elevated cocktails in Downtown Napa.
Courtney is our rock and has been leading the backend of Napa Valley Distillery through the Pandemic. She manages everything from our products and brand development, to our inventory and distribution. She helped with our Hollywood Room development and has been key for our ArBaretum opening as well.
She brings her experience to us while going to school and plans on using that experience in her future. When she's not at the distillery, she's on the trail hiking throughout the state and seeing the forest, and the trees.
At the distillery, you'll find her helping staff and customers both in the distillery, and at the bar. You'll also see her testing new products and keeping the shelves looking beautiful for our guest with them as well as other gifts and bottle options to take home.
