Stan Jennings

Facilities Manager

As the facilities engineer of Rack & Riddle Custom Wine Services, Stan first found himself knee-deep in the non-stop construction activities germane to building a sterling 500,000-case custom crush facility. It was the latest and most exciting challenge in Stan’s distinguished career which started as Project Engineer for Container Technology Corporation in Denver, Colorado.

Trading the snowy peaks of Colorado for the sunny coast of California, Stan became the Vice
President of Sales for Womack International, an equipment supply company to the container industry, which eventually led to his current position at Rack & Riddle.

Since blueprints were drafted and ground broke in 2007, Stan has been integral to ensuring
optimal design of the facility—vetting only the best equipment and creating a layout geared
toward the serious winemaker.

Today, Stan continues to manage every aspect of the 125,000-square-foot facility and extensive
grounds. From the welcome signs and pipe fittings, to pond operations and interfacing with
vineyard management, to obtaining new equipment and leading IT operations, Stan ensures
everything at the winery runs smoothly.

Stan holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology from SE Missouri State. He
and wife Valarie live in Brady Bunch fashion in Petaluma, where they raised (and are raising)
their five children.

Away from the winery, Stan enjoys golf, working around the house and family activities.
