bill gresham, wine educator

Bill has been a fixture at Biale since 2008, is the longest-tenured member of the Tasting Room staff, and a loyal member of our Black Chicken Society. A true “Wine Educator,” he provides first-class service and hospitality, while offering up facts, stories, and anecdotes about all things Zinfandel. Bill epitomizes the word “Ambassador” as he can often be seen around the Napa/Sonoma area at other wineries and restaurants handing out bottles of our world-class Zinfandel and spreading the message of Black Chicken. Now that he retired after 30 years of public service, Bill will tell you he is “living the dream” and that “my office view is pretty fantastic” as he gazes out at the gorgeous Napa Valley view visible from the Tasting Room patio. Other interests include food, fun, friends, family, world travel, and sports (Las Vegas Raiders, Golden State Warriors, and New York Yankees). He is also an avid collector of fine wines with an impressive cellar to enjoy.
