Ed pressed and fermented hard cider with his Hudson Valley cousins as a kid, and started home brewing at the tender age of 17. After retiring from a career in the New York City mounted police, he came to Milea Estate in 2008. Soon after, he found himself planning a winemaking program with Barry Milea. Today, Ed manages our cider making and distilling programs, and assists with winemaking and viticulture. You can find him on a tractor in the vineyard, or on a ladder in the orchard.
