Young Napa star discovered by Angels
- Alex Farber is a startling young talent that Angels discovered working at a big fancy winery in Napa Valley.
- Every winery wishes it had an Alex Farber because she's diligent, passionate and knows her stuff... but most wineries hide their junior talent and shine a spotlight on some old fuddy-duddy consulting oenologist who drops by the winery a few times a year.
- Angels give credit where credit is due, and Alex now gets to make her own stunning wines (and gets all the applause!)

Alexandra Farber's Story
"I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Viticulture and Enology, and I have been working in winemaking ever since. I've gotten to do harvests in Napa and Chile, flipping between the northern and southern hemispheres to do more than one harvest a year.
"I became a winemaker because it blends art and science, and I love doing something that has a finished project that my friends and family can enjoy.
"I have been working with world-class winemakers for the last 5 years, and this is my first time making wines on my own – so this is a big step and I want to thank my Angels.
"On top of my personal wine project, I get to help manage the whole team of Angel-funded winemakers (there's more than 130 of us now!), and I love that I get to work with winemakers from all around the world. I am learning so much so quickly!"
