“I’m a dream weaver for people,” Gott said. “I will help you get your dream. If you’re dreaming incorrectly, I will correct you, but what I try to do is steer you down your path that you get to fulfill.”
Gott, 63, is the fourth generation of his family to work in the California grape and wine business. He previously worked at Seagram Chateau and Estates, Sterling Vineyards and Mumm Napa Valley, in addition to other enterprises.
The family also owns Gott’s Roadside cafés.
