Mindy, a Cal Poly San Luis Obispo agribusiness graduate fell in love with farming grapes in Paso Robles.

A position as Assistant Vineyard Manager at Treasury Estates, one of the world’s largest wine brands, put Mindy into the vineyard daily where she gained valuable boots on the ground experience. Raised in San Jacinto, California she developed a passion for farming while being immersed in her family’s row and forge crop agribusiness, RGR Farming Company.
