Erika has completed the Texas Tech University Viticulture program, as a premier student in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, with an overall grade of 99.

From helping hand-bottle for other wineries at 7 years old and planting vineyards, the Texas Hill Country terroir is under her nails and producing highly recognized Texas wines is her reality.

Sommelier, Winemaker, Teacher, and innovative Viticulturist are only a few of Erika’s accolades.

Erika’s undergraduate in International Business and Marketing, combined with her passion to protect the land and produce natural, international awarded wines makes her the perfect Ambassador of Solaro wines and the Texas Hill Country, throughout the US and Europe.

She continues to prove what a credit she is to the wine industry and the future of the Texas Hill Country. All of us are proud to have her in the wine business!
