John Wetzel

John Wetzel is the youngest of AVV founders Harry and Maggie Wetzel’s four children. He spent the summers of his early years working in the vineyards and bottling some of the first vintages of family wines. With degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Southern California and an MBA from Pepperdine University, his initial career was in engineering, but John has always remained close to the family wine business as an owner and partner in both the vineyard and winery operations. Today he is the Western States Sales Manager for Northern California, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. In addition to these responsibilities, he also coordinates all export sales activities.
