Cecily Parrish Ray
Cecily Parrish Ray, is the daughter of David Parrish. She joined the business in 2013 as General Manager, but had previously worked summers in the vineyard and tasting room gaining hands on experience.
After graduating from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, with a BFA in photography, she applied her skill set to the business by creating the original logo and labels. She also began using her design and photography skills for marketing. Her photography is showcased in the tasting room with unique vineyard pieces.
In 2018, she decided to learn another art in the form of bread making. She took private lessons with the esteemed, Chef William Carter, of the beautiful Canyon Villa Bed & Breakfast. Chef Carter taught her how to bake sourdough and other artisan breads. It was through these lessons that she was able to offer the bread at the new tasting room, featuring sourdough from the Parrish's estate Cabernet Sauvignon grapes (a 5 year old sourdough starter).
Fast forward to 2021, Cecily stepped into the role as Culinary Director to work alongside her husband, Ethan Ray. The husband and wife team create seasonal offerings, pairings, and other culinary experiences to compliment the wines that their father have worked so hard to craft.
