Ray was practicing law — real estate litigation in New York City — until January of 2020 when he and owner Tobin made the long-planned plunge and moved to Napa Valley to take over Green & Red. Growing up in an Italian family, where food and wine were key parts of life, Ray has dreamed of making fine wine at Green & Red Winery. Ray wears many hats at Green & Red, acting as counsel, “Cellar Rat,” under Winemaker Aaron Whitlatch, and supportive husband to owner Tobin Heminway.
