~ Wine Director ~
A 2010 graduate of the University of Virginia, Matthew first joined King Family Vineyards as a member of the staff in February of 2011 and he now calls Crozet "home." In his time here, he has worked in the vineyard and winery, as well as in the tasting room and office. He holds a Diploma in Wines & Spirits from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust and is currently a student of the Institute of Masters of Wine which, like the WSET, is based in London. While Matthew helps out everywhere, his main focus is managing our Wine Club. When he's not cramming for his next wine exam, Matthew finds time for fresh air, playing fiddle, or cooking a good meal.
