Jeffrey Earl Warren’s professional career has had two parts. After graduating from University of California, Berkeley, he spent the following 15 years in the advertising business as a copywriter and Vice president/Creative Director of J. Walter Thompson in New York (and later Senior Vice President of Foote, Cone & Belding in San Francisco). While in New York, Jeff co-authored the fitness book, Mike Spino’s Mind/Body Running Program (published by Bantam). He also wrote op-eds, magazine pieces, comedy, and was a speechwriter.
In 1986 his father enticed him to take over the family real estate business back home in St. Helena. Specializing in vineyards and winery properties, Jeff was President of James Warren & Son before joining Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty. As a minority owner in Freemark Abbey Winery, his expertise in “dirt” and knowledge of the wine industry, has resulted in his being sought out by locals and newcomers alike who are interested following the example of his father and himself–and bringing their families to the Valley. He has experienced, first hand, what you are about to go through.
He’s kept up his love of writing by doing a weekly column in the local St. Helena Star newspaper and had a local radio show on KVON, Napa.
He now lives in St. Helena with his wife, Cynthia. They have three children, Casey, JJ, and Cody.
