Sarah Gott and Bruce Regalia
Sarah Gott is a perfect fit in the Clif family as a passionate winemaker and also as a triathlete. She received a degree in Viticulture and Enology from University of California-Davis and began her career at Joseph Phelps Vineyards in the early 1990’s. She has also worked as the winemaker at Quintessa and currently works at Joel Gott Wines with her husband, while also consulting for several Napa Valley wineries. Her partnership with Bruce Regalia for this 2008 Kit’s Killer Cab was a fortunate meeting of creative minds that developed this elegant and charming wine.
Bruce has been studying the process of fermentation, whether it be wine, beer or vinegar, since childhood. In college Bruce focused on plant and soil science with a specific concentration on viticulture. His career in Napa Valley has seen him at several fine wineries such as Navarro Vineyards, Obester Winery and Duckhorn Goldeneye.
