About the winemaker

Faith began her involvement with the wine industry at Ironstone Vineyards as Tasting Room Manager. Several years later, after working in marketing and promoting wine events in San Francisco, she found herself wanting to be more involved with wine from the ground up, so she started down the path to become a winemaker. What followed was a full Regents Scholarship to the University of California at Davis, and a Degree in Viticulture and Enology with Highest Honors in 2006.

After graduation, Faith began working for Frank Family Vineyards as a Lab Technician, and was soon promoted to Enologist and then Assistant Winemaker. At Frank Family, she was involved in all aspects of making highly acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, sparkling wine, and port.

Winemaker, Faith Armstrong-Foster and her boys
Beginning in 2009 Faith launched her own brand, Onward Wines, and since early 2011 has been focused making her own wines. In addition to Onward she is also the winemaker for Farmers Jane Wine Company, a partnership started in 2010.

Onward Wines produces wines made of one hundred percent Pinot Noir, being Faith’s favorite variety both to work with and to enjoy.

Faith lives in Napa with her husband, Sean Foster, Senior Winemaker at Merryvale Vineyards, and their four kids, dog, cat, and seven hens. In addition to winemaking, she enjoys volunteering at her children’s school, gardening, preserving food and sharing meals with friends and family.
