Jacob Reyes, Winemaker

A Southern California native, Jacob Reyes spent several years apprenticing at Joseph Filippi Winery in Rancho Cucamonga, California, where he produced wine for their estate and sacramental wine labels prior to arriving here in Paso Robles.

As he set out to find work to fund a trip to Napa, he ran into a bit of luck during a tasting at PasoPort, where he secured a job for harvest and an opportunity to be an Assistant Winemaker under Steve Glossner.

Jacob has continued his journey with a new vision here in Paso Robles and brought his youthful exuberance to Guyomar in 2020 as Assistant Winemaker. Jacob will continue forward to lead the cellar as Guyomar’s new head winemaker, collaborating with Ishka on a mutual vision of terroir driven wines.
