We offer goals-based wealth management to select active & retired wine industry executives, business owners, and generations of families – mostly in Napa, Sonoma, and Solano counties. On their behalf, we deliver boutique-like attention and the vast resources of a global financial institution.
We understand the latest trends, risks and opportunities, but when it comes to managing your wealth, the most important thing is understanding you and your priorities. It starts with a conversation, building a foundation that helps us get to know you — your unique goals, priorities and financial situation — followed by a disciplined investment strategy, offering access to the investment insights of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank and the banking convenience of Bank of America. As you and the markets change, we will meet to track progress and adjust strategy, as needed. When you succeed, we succeed.
We believe in families, complex as they may be. Communication is instrumental to success in managing life’s challenges. We work to engage families in the financial decision-making process. We look for opportunities to educate the younger generation, and we often facilitate family wealth discussions that may be difficult for clients to initiate on their own.
We also believe that the best financial strategy is the one that helps you pursue your goals. That's why, from the start, we talk about your aspirations and encourage you to ask questions about issues that matter most to you. Worried about managing future health care expenses? Providing care for others? College on the horizon? Considering the sale of a business or purchase of a home? Preparing to pass your wealth on to future generations or committed to making an impact with your wealth? With access to the capabilities of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Bank of America Private Bank, and Bank of America banking products and services, we will work with you to develop strategies that are designed to address your priorities and financial needs.
We begin every relationship with a conversation, helping you identify and prioritize which goals matter most to you. Whether it's transferring wealth to the next generation, customizing your financial approach to help you pursue your passions, or providing advice and guidance to help you stay informed, we start by listening to learn more about you and your family.
Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and help you refine your investing preferences. Together, we can help customize your investment approach. Using an understanding of your priorities and investment personality as a foundation, we help you access the full breadth of resources from Bank of America’s banking products and services and Merrill’s investment insights to address all aspects of your financial life.
Our process is designed to help deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help clients manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. We view ourselves as a financial resource, helping clients with potential solutions for transferring wealth to the younger generation.
We can offer advice and guidance designed to assist you in making investment-related decisions and trade-offs that can help you reach personally meaningful goals. So whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or fund a child’s education, We’ll start by getting to know you and how you feel about the following seven life priorities.:
Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and potentially help you refine your own investing preferences.

Our Investment Personality Assessment is one of the ways to help us get to know you - to understand your goals and priorities. These questions will give you a sense of the full assessment and help us provide you with additional insights and resources.
