Our Team

F2 is the brainchild and labor of love of German writer, photographer and musician Max Hoetzel



Max Hoetzel

Creative Director


Max is the owner and creative director of F2 Wines. When not studying medieval history, he can be found barrel tasting, throwing knives in the kitchen, tending to his horses or playing the banjo.


Steve Clifton



Steve is a legend in his own right and has shown time after time how to produce elegant and restrained wines from California grapes. His work with Brewer-Clifton, Palmina and Lavoix is unparalleled.


Bella & Gem

Vineyard Dogs


Bella and Gem spend a good portion patrolling the vineyard rows and protecting the grapes from all kindof critters, be it gophers, jackrabbits or deer.
