It is with great pleasure that we look forward to introducing you to our dear friend and one of Napa Valley's most notable Winemakers, Rob Lloyd proprietor and co-founder of Lloyd Cellars.
After graduating from the University of California, Irvine, with an Economics degree, Rob moved to the Napa Valley, where his mother had recently settled. While she provided the location, it was his father’s love of California Chardonnay that pushed his career in the direction of this classic varietal. Working in the tasting room and harvest nightshift at Cakebread further sparked his interest in the wine business.
After graduating from UC Davis in 1999, he landed a position as Enologist and then Assistant Winemaker at La Crema Winery in Sonoma County. Rob later became the
Assistant Winemaker at Napa Valley’s Rombauer Estate from 2001 to 2003, the
Associate Winemaker from 2003 to 2006, and Winemaker from 2006 to 2008. Ready to make wines the way he prefers, Rob and his wife Bonnie established Lloyd Cellars and Prescription Vineyards.
Rob’s love of music has also informed the brand positioning of Lloyd Cellars and Prescription Vineyards. From hosting their first tent at Napa Valley’s Bottle Rock Festival to being a regular sponsor of MUSEXPO: The United Nations of Music & Media in Hollywood. More engagement with wine consumers via music is in the works.
