Oakville, California, April 28, 2022—Opus One Winery CEO, Christopher Lynch, and Winemaker, Michael Silacci, are pleased to announce the appointment of Angela Muscarella as Director of Production. Angela was named production manager on February 7 and began overseeing, planning and scheduling all production supplies, acting as safety manager and maintaining and improving the sustainability program.
Angela Muscarella studied wine and viticulture at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Shortly after graduating from high school, she joined the Opus One hospitality program and quickly developed an interest in viticulture and winemaking. She first joined the production team as production coordinator, where she provided support to the winemaker and production team.
Says Ms. Muscarella: “I look forward to working with our team on an ongoing basis to develop our Green Print, as Michael calls it, to improve our safety management program and provide support to our production team. Our 2030 vision centers on the fact that all Opus One employees are stewards of the land, and we owe it to our successors to ensure our vineyards and winery are in better condition than we found them.
“Angela’s new role will grow as sustainability practices in the industry evolve,” said Michael Silacci. “As with everything she has accomplished at Opus One, Angela will be a leader in guiding Opus One in the right direction. Her skills, work ethic and dedication have paid off for her and for Opus One.
Created in 1978 by the legendary Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi, the emblematic champion of Napa Valley in California, Opus One remains determined to realize the dream of our founders.—give life to a unique wine that expresses time and place, that embodies the personality and character of our founders. Opus One produces a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grown at our estate vineyards in Oakville, California.
