Willow Park Wines & Spirits has enjoyed a strong relationship with Rodney Strong Vineyards over many decades. A huge supporter of our annual Charity Wine Auction, the wines have become customer favourites.

Justin Seidenfeld, Director of Winemaking

Justin Seidenfeld serves as Director of Winemaking for Rodney Strong Vineyards, the iconic Sonoma County Winery that was founded in 1959 by namesake Rod Strong. Justin’s winemaking career began in Sebastopol, California, where he was an intern at Iron Horse winery in 2005. He quickly rose from cellar hand to taking on winemaking responsibilities which led to a position in 2006 at the venerable Robert Mondavi Winery in the Napa Valley.

Ron Washam, Master Sommelier

After 20 years as a working sommelier in Los Angeles, I moved to Sonoma County. I was twice named Sommelier of the Year (1993 and 2003) by the California Restaurant Writers Association. In 2016, I won a prestigious Louis Roederer International Wine Writing Award for my satiric pieces on TimAtkin.com. I’ve loved wine for as long as I can remember. Aside from my Roederer Wine Writing Award, and my Sommelier of the Year Awards, I was also invited to speak at the 2016 Napa Valley Wine Writers' Symposium. I'm a long-time wine judge for the San Francisco International Wine Competition, the California State Fair, and the Central Coast Wine Competition, among many others. I’ve been part of the Rodney Strong family for the past six years.

· Rodney Strong Chalk Hill Chardonnay, 750 ml bottle
