TH Estate Wines, located in the Willow Creek AVA of Paso Robles, has welcomed Phillip LaMontagne as the new assistant winemaker. LaMontagne first joined TH Estate as a harvest intern in 2015, after which he stayed on to help in the cellar. He has worked three full harvests with the Hoages before being promoted to assistant winemaker.

He will not only be working with TH Estate grown fruit, but also with fruit sourced for the new District 8 label and the Decroux label, which focuses on cool-climate Pinot Noir.
