Ashley Egelhoff was born and raised in Southern California. Going into her first year of college at UC Davis she had only a vague notion that she wanted to major in something science-related. However, her path became clear in her first quarter after taking Introduction to Winemaking. After graduating with a BS in Viticulture and Enology, she spent her first harvest as an intern at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. In an effort to broaden her wine knowledge and cultural horizons, Ashley travelled to Mendoza, Argentina for her second harvest internship. Following a third internship at Phelps, she joined the Honig winemaking team in early 2012.
Ashley lives with her family in Napa. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, hiking, camping and watching football.
