Born and raised in Northern California, Ryan Prichard’s passion for wine blossomed while taking a wine appreciation course at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Initially, Prichard worked with smaller wineries in California and Colorado before joining Williams Selyem in Healdsburg where he learned the art of making Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. While running the cellar at Sonoma County’s premier Copain Custom Crush, he was able to work with, and learn from, dozens of the county’s best winemakers. In 2015, Ryan joined Three Sticks where he crafts estate-only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that showcases Three Sticks’ exceptional vineyards throughout Sonoma.
