Our Winemaking team

In hand-crafting their wines, Matt and Maria Kluchenek work closely with seasoned winemaker Kian Tavakoli, who provides unparalleled stewardship in the development of Mind’s Eye’s wines.

Kian Tavakoli, who has more than 14 years of premium winemaking experience, brings not only a stellar combination of sensory and production skills to Mind’s Eye Winery, but the passion to make ultra-premium wines that surpass expectations.  Kian previously served as the winemaker of Clos Du Val’s red wines, including the winery’s highly-acclaimed reserve bottling. Prior to joining Clos Du Val, Kian worked for several years at Opus One.  He has degrees in viticulture and genetics from the University of California at Davis. We are extremely pleased to have the talents of Kian in producing wines that strive for perfection.
