Meet the Winemaking Team

Chuck Gergley, Winemaker

Originally hailing from New York, Chuck Gergley entered the wine-making world in 2007 at Crushpad, an urban winery in San Francisco, CA. During his time there he was fortunate enough to work with grapes from some of the best vineyards in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington State. While at Crushpad he began developing the skills necessary to produce fine wine in an urban environment. After returning to the east coast, he joined Brooklyn Winery for the 2011 harvest season and has been part of the team ever since. Chuck oversees production at Brooklyn Winery and continually aims to maintain and produce wines that are distinctive, surprising, fun, and innovative. “Winemaking is constantly throwing new challenges at you and there’s always more and more to learn—that’s what makes it so rewarding.”
