Seth is the vigneron and vintner for Baci Winery at St. Joseph Vineyard in the Grand River Valley AVA, Madison, OH. Crafting cool climate varietals like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, he is passionate about how these wines represent a sense of place in Northeast Ohio. Seth's passion as a winemaker comes from a life-long fascination of quality and craftsmanship. Seth grew up in Youngstown, Ohio but made California his home for ten years. It was in California where he fell in love with wine. With a degree in Agronomy, a love for the outdoors and an affinity for wine, Seth is right at home in the wine industry. His team believes that all great wine starts in the vineyard. It is where the earth, the soil, the vine, and Mother Nature intersect that makes beautiful wines. What the French call, terroir. His philosophy involves nurturing the vines while allowing the wines to express themselves and evolve with minimal intervention.
