Edgar was raised in Cambria, CA since the age of 8. He fell in love with wine while working as a waiter at Villa Creek restaurant in Paso Robles in his early 20s. His first exposure to the production side of winemaking was as an intern at Garreston Wine Co. in Paso, from 2002 to 2005. In 2006 Edgar further developed his winemaking skills when he began working for Augie Hug from Hug Cellars as his Assistant Winemaker.
At Hug Cellars, he also worked alongside Alta Maria Vineyard and Native9 to help produce their wines. In 2009 Edgar began working for the guys at Barrel 27. As the Assistant Winemaker for Barrel 27 and McPrice Myers wines, he has enjoyed refining his blending skills and learning from Mac. Edgar also produces his own wines, Bodega de Edgar.
