Meet New ASEV Director Hope Goldie, Winemaker at Darioush Winery

Hope Goldie used to garden and grow winegrapes with her father in Yakima, Washington, when she was eight years old. She never imagined that winegrapes would continue to be the focus of her career path.

Hope is the director of winemaking at Darioush Winery in Napa, California. She oversees all enology and wine production operations – from the vineyard to the cellar, laboratory, and crush pad. She joined Darioush in 2005 as an enologist and contributed as a winemaker alongside Darioush’s founding winemaker, Steve Devitt, for ten years before being promoted to Director of Winemaking, beginning with the 2018 vintage. Her responsibilities range from solving vineyard issues, troubleshooting in the laboratory and/or cellar, and reviewing samples, to meeting with growers to buy fruit and barrels, judging at competitive tastings, and digging deep with her sensory work to look for ways to improve phenolics and color.

Previous to Darioush, she was a lab technician at Opus One Winery in Napa, a brewer at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, and worked in a cellar position at Stag’s Leap Winery. She was also the enologist at Rutherford Hill Winery. Her journey led her to focus on making exceptional, high-end Bordeaux blends.

In 1996, Hope enrolled in the Master of Science program in Food Science and Technology/Enology at the University of California, Davis, under the tutelage of sensory scientist and 2006 ASEV Merit Award recipient, Dr. Ann C. Noble. As her lead grad student, the California Department of Food & Agriculture sponsored Hope’s quantitative microbiology thesis work on Botrytis cinerea.

Hope joined the ASEV Board of Directors in 2021. She’s been a member of ASEV since 1999 and brings an invaluable perspective from the wine industry.

“ASEV maintains the highest standard for academic research. I like that ASEV is where you turn to for scientific research – not opinion, but fact-based information. It’s important for the wine and grape industry to maintain the purity of rigorous scientific research and ASEV is safeguarding this fading practice,” said Hope Goldie.

“We’re thrilled Hope has joined the ASEV board as a director. Her fresh, straightforward approach brings a depth of knowledge and resource from the winemaking community” said Dan Howard, ASEV Executive Director. “She’s been a wonderful addition to the group to keep ASEV moving forward.”
