Diana grew up in a home where wine was embraced as part of the fabric of family life. This connection only deepened when her family planted their first grapes on Spring Mountain in 1981, establishing Schweiger Vineyards. As the daughter of vintners, the sister of a winemaker, and a wine country native, Diana Schweiger brings a rare and unique skill set to Acumen—expertise that has been honed over the course of more than 25 years in the wine industry. In addition to her extensive industry experience, Diana has served as a wine competition judge and spokesperson for Napa Valley
Raised in the Napa Valley, Phillip discovered his interest in viticulture when he began working alongside his father and brothers in his family’s St. Helena vineyard at the age of 12—an interest that was further kindled around the dinner table, where his father would often pour wines from Europe and California.
