After earning his BS in Business Management from Sonoma State University, Eddie Maria spent several years in marketing and finance roles before devoting himself full time to a career in hospitality. He’d worked his way through high school and college as a restaurant server and manager, so it wasn’t a stretch to return to hospitality, this time in the wine industry. Having grown up in Sutter Creek, Eddie is well versed in the wines of Amador County and the Sierra Foothills and was thrilled when Rombauer purchased a second winery in the region. “I love the variety of excellent wines Rombauer adds to this region along with their amazing locally-grown Zinfandels! ” Eddie is married with two children and serves as a volunteer coach.
