Mark Houser

Mark Houser is a vigilant farmer. He walks the Wetzel Family Estate for hours, surveying vines, assessing soil conditions, studying hillside contours, evaluating erosion potential — all while admiring the abundant wildlife and bucolic views. A believer in protecting the complex natural environment while growing the best grapes possible, Mark’s philosophy is both practical and ecologically sensitive. “We work with mother nature, keeping everything in balance with the natural elements.” Mark joined AVV in 1999 after managing estate vineyards throughout California. He is a graduate of the Viticulture program at California State University, Fresno.
