Cast Winery: Meet Cast Wines, a West Coast winery with a bevy of Dallasites behind it. Located in a gorgeous setting in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County, Cast Wines is just the sort of boutique-y type spot that make wine country visits a pleasure. Lakewood residents Jack Seifrick and his wife, Ann, launched the new venture in 2011 with the support of Texas friends. The Harvard MBA and Arthur Anderson accounting firm alum’s background includes running a successful commercial real estate business in Dallas. He also founded Professional Bank in Lakewood which sold to Veritex in 2010. Cast Wines began as occasional trips to Northern Cali wine country, which rolled into the next phase of an entrepreneurial career for Seifrick. The Sonoma County area northwest of Napa was a favorite destination. On a magical trip to bike Sonoma terrain during harvest time in 2012, they came across a beautiful property which had a somewhat run down house but well-established grape vines. The Seifricks immediately felt as if a spell had been cast over them — Vineyard Fever, you might say. Now empty nesters, the couple decided starting a wine business would be the next chapter in their lives. Returning to Dallas, they shared the idea with friends who responded, “I’m in.” The Dallas contingent, about 30 families, make up about three-quarters of the investor group Seifrick put together to buy the property, hire a stellar winemaker, and set up production in Dry Creek Valley. They christened the business “Cast Wines” for the sense of enchantment the property exudes with its spectacular view overlooking scenic Bradford Mountain and the Western hills of Dry Creek Valley.

Cast Winemaker: Mike Gulyash has spent the majority of his career making wine in Sonoma County. Mike started his career at Jordan Estate. There, influenced by winemakers André Tchelistcheff and Rob Davis, he learned his craft and adopted his unique approach, advancing over ten years to become Cellar Master. Mike then joined B. R. Cohn Winery as Winemaker where he collaborated with winemaker Merry Edwards. Mike has built a reputation for his deft touch and intuition in crafting his delicious, award-winning wines, most recently at Zichichi Family Winery.
