Amanda Baird grew up in the agriculture-rich city of Merced, and as such, working with the earth has always been in her blood. While attending Cal Poly for Agricultural Business with an emphasis on Wine & Viticulture, Baird had her first internship at Laeticia Winery, where she fell in love with the industry. “Winemaker Eric Hickey would pull me aside and explain some of their particular practices, and I was very intrigued. I figured if he was still learning and experimenting at this point in his career, then that was something I wanted to do.”

After graduating, Baird had successful stints at Halter Ranch—working with 27 different varietals in a natural winemaking style—and Adeliada Cellars, both in Paso Robles. Baird’s first foray into wines at Rideau include a Sta. Rita Hills-designated Pinot Noir with 25% stem inclusion. Sourced from the respected John Sebastiano Vineyard, Baird anticipates this wine will signal a new era at Rideau Vineyard. “Iris has provided us with new equipment and with the resources to upgrade not only the cellar, but also the estate vineyard. She is pursuing quality, and it’s great to be on her team.” Additionally, Rideau has hired the esteemed Coastal Vineyard Care team of consultants, led by Ruben Solarzano, to oversee her estate vineyard.
