Ryan Ruhl

Vice President, Operations

Ryan Ruhl got his first taste of the meaning of true hospitality at his grandparents’ home in Napa, where frequent gatherings of friends and family were full of warmth and laughter. Every year, his grandparents would host a bottling party for a barrel of wine produced by the fruit of their small vineyard and to this day, he believes that the best wine is one that’s shared.

Driven from Missouri back to Napa to find his own home in the wine industry, Ryan discovered like minds at Darioush, which he joined in 2003. As Vice President of Operations, his involvement extends across the winery, and his primary goal is to foster an environment in which every team has the space to try, fail, succeed, learn, and grow. In faithful keeping with the Darioush spirit of constant evolution, Ryan is proud to support the never-ending quest for a better approach, at every level.
