Assistant Winemaker and Cider Maker; Leonard Oakes Winery/SteamPunk Cider

Ben Jones

Fermentation science found me in my early thirties while working at a homebrew supply store in Rochester. A hobby quickly grew into a passion and I moved back to my hometown of Medina New York in 2015 to take a position as assistant wine & cider maker at Leonard Oakes Estate Winery/Steampunk Cider. I have since completed EnoCert certificates from Cornell to supplement my training and continue to fuel my thirst for knowledge through self-education. My free time is spent as a husband & father, musician, and woodworker.
