Lance Ellman Owner & Proprietor

Born in South Africa, Lance was 1 when the family settled in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A graduate of Syracuse University, Lance stepped into the family mattress business to work alongside his brother Neil. Lance currently resides in Fort Lauderdale, FL with his wife Caryn Renae for whom the Sauvignon Blanc is named, raising their two children, Miles and Alexis Skye, the namesake for the Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. He also has a Tibetan Terrier named Sammy.

Whether he is dealing with facilities and machinery in the mattress business or crushing grapes for Ellman Family Vineyards, Lance is the operational force behind the success of the family businesses. Lance became engrossed with the wine industry on his many travels around the world with his family. Having been exposed to some of the finest wines, Lance knew that one day, there would be an Ellman Family Vineyards that would produce wines from the most distinguished regions in northern California.
