Vineyard Director, Paicines Ranch
For the past 25 years Kelly has managed and consulted with vineyards, farms and ranches throughout the western USA, Spain and Australia. His focus is on combining experience in farming and viticulture with holistic management in order to design and manage more ecologically, socially and economically sound farming practices. This usually involves a considerable amount of help from livestock. Kelly regularly does presentations at numerous conferences throughout the United States, and in 2012 he was sponsored by government and wine industry organizations to give presentations and workshops on extended-season vineyard grazing throughout Australia and New Zealand. His studies include Ecological Horticulture at UC Santa Cruz and Holistic Management with Allan Savory.
Kelly has been vineyard director at Paicines Ranch since 2014 and does design/advising work for vineyards.
