Matthew Salling

Logistics/Materials Manager

A native of Calistoga, Matthew brings 30 years of experience in all aspects of wine production to Rack & Riddle, most recently as production planning specialist at Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines. His previous roles there over a span of 13 years included distribution coordinator, and bottling & warehouse supervisor. At Rack & Riddle, Matthew spearheads materials readiness and is the primary contact for shipping and receiving of materials and product. As an important member of the R&R team, Matthew drives improved operations, and delivers top-tier customer service to help us achieve our primary goal: exceeding clients' expectations. “I very much enjoy logistics work, and being part of a team that’s truly interested in winemaking as an art instead of just producing wine,” says Matthew. In his spare time, Matthew enjoys spending time with his wife of nearly 20 years, Karin, their two daughters (both in college), cooking, and his hobby of photography.
