Markus Bokisch
Owner/ CEO/Vigneron

Kristine is a Stockton native and a true valley girl at heart. She started her passion for wine on the Monterey Peninsula several years ago and has brought the love for the industry back closer to home! When she is not greeting customers and Salut! Club Members in the Bokisch tasting room, she spends her time with family and friends and also enjoys touring wineries all over California. 


In Our Winery

Outside the winery, Elyse can be found at a SF Giants game or hiking, skiing, biking, running…in other words, she loves the outdoors and has energy to burn.  Elyse’s passion and energy has always been evident; in her younger years she was a ballet and tap dancer.

He has a long background in the food and beverage business and absolutely enjoys getting to know each and every guest.
