Wine Club Director
Candice is a native northern Californian who grew up in Marin County and moved to Sonoma County with her husband to start their family in the 1980s. Looking for a way to get a break from raising their three children, she started working in the tasting room at De Loach Vineyards in 1987. When the De Loach family opened the Hook & Ladder Tasting Room it was a perfect fit.
Candice heads up the Hook & Ladder Wine Society, our direct-to-consumer wine club. She also works in the tasting room, and is our “go-to” person if there are any questions about the history of both De Loach Vineyards and Hook & Ladder.
When she isn’t in the tasting room assisting guests and wine club members, she and her husband Ron make their own wine, and tend their Zinfandel Vineyard in Vineburg, CA. Candice’s ideal relaxation is reading a good book while enjoying a glass of Hook and Ladder Chardonnay.
