General Manager - Katrina M. O'Quinn

 Katrina has always had a passion for wine and food, so in 1994 when opportunity knocked on her  door, she left  behind the world of international banking in San Francisco and moved to Napa Valley. 

 Armed with 21 years of a diverse background at wineries both small and large in consulting, sales,  marketing,  operations and hospitality, Katrina dons the many hats required of a General Manager.  Her  knowledge and  commitment will continue to help see us through to the next step in our wine journey –  the building of the  winery!

 When not at Ideology Cellars, Katrina can be found in the saddle, on the slopes or on the water.    Katrina,  husband Thomas and daughter Sydney reside in Napa.


Vineyard Manager - Bill Munk

Since 1995, Bill Munk our Vineyard Manager, has been managing and nurturing the vines on our estate vineyard. Having Bill oversee our vineyards has resulted in the beautiful fruit that makes our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the years, Bill’s leadership has lead us to a solid, well-deserved reputation for producing a consistently powerful collection of wines. This tradition of eminently drinkable yet complex Cabernet Sauvignon continues today.




Our 2014 Estate Rosé is balanced and crisp.  Flavors of raspberry, red berries, and peaches come through marvelously to complete this dry and well-rounded Rosé.  This charming wine is very approachable, extremely food friendly and quite refreshing.  The perfect wine for backyard entertaining on a hot day! 



Shipping wine during hot weather can spell disaster for wine.  Ideology Cellars prefers and recommends not shipping wines during the months of June – September.  However, if you really can’t wait for cooler weather, we can arrange overnight or 2-day air.  In the case of extreme hot temperatures, shipments may be delayed to protect your wine.
