Ashley Holland

Winemaker/Co-Owner

Read Holland Wines

A serendipitous road brought Ashley to winemaking. Originally from Oklahoma, she grew up riding horses and hoped to become an equine veterinarian. While studying animal science, she took a class called “International Beverage Education,” as an elective. After a couple of classes focused in wine, she quickly realized that the science from studying to become a veterinarian, applied to winemaking as well.
