In 1978 she briefly attended classes in Davis, then headed to Napa to begin her career. Eileen has always been
fascinated by the magic of sparkling wines and she has been responsible for overseeing the construction and development of two major sparkling houses. Today as CEO/Founding Winemaker of Domaine Carneros, she heads one of the most prestigious and successful Sparkling Houses.
