We have a small but dedicated group of individuals that share in Bookcliff’s success.
Omar Delgado Mondragón, is always looking for improvement and to learn new things every day. Omar grew up around the vineyards in Palisade. He has earned an associate degree of Applied Science in the transportation field, with concentrations in diesel technology and automotive services. In 2016, he completed a bachelor’s of business administration at Colorado Mesa University, with an emphasis in management. He puts his automotive skills to good use maintaining the farm equipment and his business degree provides a good foundation for directing and managing farm work throughout the season. Omar enjoys the challenges presented by nature during the growing season and learning how to adjust the vineyard practices to what is needed in the vineyard. Omar finds it rewarding when harvest season comes around, to bring in the best fruit possible.
Danica ‘fell in love’ with the Colorado wine region when on a tour of Colorado’s vineyards and wineries a number of years ago. Inspired by the passion and purpose of the artisans she encountered, as well as with the quality of the wine many of the winemakers produced, Danica followed her heart into the career of her dreams—to represent and sell fine Colorado wines. After dedicated study earned her twin certifications, both as a Cellar Manager and as an Executive Wine Sommelier from the International Wine & Spirits Guild in Denver, CO., she initially founded The Wandering WineKnow™ to share her expertise in wine appreciation. Today Danica still delights in teaching, but as BookCliff Vineyards’ Sales Manager for the Denver region, she feels she has come full circle as a voice for Colorado wine and the industry.
