Founded by Jeff and son Collin Cranor in 2009, they laid the groundwork for Nottingham Cellars. Through the undeniable growth, they made the addition of their first employee, David Doig in 2010 as the COO. Dave has been a tremendous help to Nottingham's growth and success, and we are thankful for him and his expertise. Emma Ryan joined the team in 2017 in the tasting room, and after graduating from Sonoma State in Wine Business she has since been promoted to the Hospitality Manager as her talents have helped grow our wine club and connect with customers in a genuine and warming way. In 2018, NC had the opportunity to add Craig Ploof, one of the most talented winemakers in the region to manage the day to day winery operations and to bring a new dynamic to our winemaking program. Jeremy Troupe-Masi was our next addition, as he brings extensive knowledge of fine dining, as well as a completion of his Sommelier Level II. Lauren Barkley recently joined the team as our Director of Marketing, combining a background in Enology and Viticulture with a MBA in Wine Business to help streamline marketing efforts across brands. The team at NC all bring different strengths and perspectives to the team and we recognize the value that each of us brings as individuals. We believe that we are capable of producing wines that are as good as anywhere in the world.
