Specializing in Vineyard and Winery Properties
Patrick moved to Napa, California with his family in 1970. Patrick is a licensed real estate agent with Strong & Hayden.
As a teenager, Patrick spent the summers working in the vineyards and wine cellars for Justin Meyer at Silver Oak Cellars. Justin taught Patrick the wine industry and after graduating from college with a degree in Marketing he joined the Sales/Marketing team at Silver Oak for nearly seven years. In 1994, he left Silver Oak Cellars to run the American Vineyard Foundation (AVF).
At the AVF, Patrick managed and coordinated the research programs for the California wine and wine grape industry. The AVF was a stepping stone for Patrick as he shifted out of that role to assume the CEO Position at Meyer Family Enterprises MFE. For over ten years at MFE, Patrick was responsible for running an investment portfolio that exceeded $50 million dollars. A large portion of the portfolio was real estate projects – including vineyard development and winery management for the family’s winery.
In those roles at the AVF and MFE, he worked with over 800 wineries and 4,500 growers up and down the state of California. Wonderful friendships were established and those relationships allowing Patrick in his role as a Commercial Real Estate to reach out to winery and grower principals – small, medium or large to pursue vineyard and winery opportunities.
