Gina holds a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Reed College and an AAS in Winemaking from Chemeketa. Before transitioning to a career in winemaking, she worked as a semiconductor engineer for seven years in both Oregon and Dublin, Ireland. Desiring a career that no longer involved cubicles, she returned to Oregon in early 2006 to establish roots in the wine industry and has never looked back. Gina assumed her role as winemaker for the legendary Adelsheim Vineyard in 2018. She is an active participant in the Oregon winemaking community, serving on the Oregon Wine Board's Research Committee and the board of the International Pinot Noir Celebration.
