Co – Founder, Owner, Vintner
Sherry founded Karlo Estates with late husband Richard Karlo in 2005. Together they built the winery from scratch. With her background in the advertising world, a passion for good design, and as a portrait painter, Sherry brings her quest for good ideas to the winery by encouraging unusual varietals, earning Karlo the reputation of leading in innovation.
As the Vintner of the winery, Sherry encourages creativity in the winemaking process itself, and also curates the portfolio, applying her expertise to package and market the wines.
Sherry is a multi award-winning Entrepreneur of The Year winner (both Ernst & Young, and SEDI) running her own ad agency, and now the winery for a combined 25 years as a business owner.
