Gavin Chanin, 26
Winemaker, Price Chanin Vineyards and Chanin Wine Co., Sonoma, CA
Chanin started tasting wine his senior year of high school in Los Angeles (shh!), then spent a summer working at Au Bon Climat in Santa Barbara alongside Jim Clendenen, who became his winemaking mentor. He worked three more California harvests, including one at nearby Qupé, before launching Chanin Wine Co. in 2007.
