Winemaking

Ted Henry - Winemaker & Mabel Ojeda - Assistant Winemaker

Great wines embody the character and complexity of the vineyards they come from. They also reflect the artistry and experience of the people who make them. As only the fourth winemaker in the four-decade history of Clos Du Val, gifted winemaker Ted Henry brings 15 years of experience making impeccably balanced, estate-grown wines to Clos Du Val, with an emphasis on Bordeaux varieties. Mentored by such luminaries as famed wine sensory chemist Dr. Ann Noble and renowned winemaker Dimitri Tchelistcheff, Ted is guiding a vibrant and vineyard-driven stylistic shift at Clos Du Val towards greater ripeness, lovely mid-palate depth and ideal tannin integration.

Supporting Ted is assistant winemaker Mabel Ojeda. Born in Chile, Mabel brings invaluable global experience and technical know-how to Clos Du Val, having made wine on four continents. After earning a degree in food science with distinction from the Universidad Austral de Chile, Mabel found her calling as a winemaker while working a harvest in New Zealand. From there, her passion for winemaking took her to Chile, Australia, Austria, Switzerland, France, South Africa, and the ultimately Napa Valley, where she has become an invaluable member of the Clos Du Val team. β€œI came here with an understanding of how respected Clos Du Val is around the world,” says Mabel. β€œTo be a part of writing the next chapter for a winery with such a rich history is thrilling.”
