Scott Laboratories’ Enology Department Announces Promotions and Additions to Their Fermentation & Enology Team


Petaluma, CA – June 2021 – Since 1933, Scott Labs has supported the wine and specialty  beverage industry with trusted experts and are continuing that tradition with new hires and  changes to their Fermentation & Enology Department. “We are fiercely dedicated to providing the  best product and process know-how to the winemaking community and our team makes this  possible,” commented Jessica Just, General Manager of Scott Labs’ Fermentation & Enology  Department. 

Eric Mohseni, a 22-year winemaking veteran of the Central Coast, joined the team in March as a  Technical Sales Representative. From Cambria, Eric supports Scott Labs on the Central Coast  along with Ronnie Hahn and brings a wealth of practical winemaking knowledge to the group. 

Annamarie “Onnie” Howard moved back to the North Bay after being on the Central Coast  since 2015. She joined Scott Labs in 2004 with an impressive resume in wine, making her an  invaluable asset to the team and the industry. She is Scott Labs’ resident malolactic fermentation  expert and was the first to launch direct inoculation malolactic bacteria in North America. Onnie is extremely excited to connect with winemakers in the North Bay as a Technical Sales Representative for Fermentation & Enology. 

Another exciting promotion rounds out the California sales team; Ashlie Helm has been  appointed key account manager in the Central Valley and Sierra Foothills. She is an alumna of  the Viticulture & Enology program at University of California, Davis, where she earned her B.S.  degree. With a strong background in winemaking and many years as part of Scott Labs’ sales  team, Ashlie is perfectly positioned to take on this role. 

Ella Beck is the Content Specialist for the Fermentation & Enology Department at Scott  Laboratories. She joins the team in a new position created specifically to take the experience and  knowledge of its team members and translate that know-how into educational resources for the  wine & beverage industry. With a degree in Viticulture and Enology from U.C. Davis, Ella worked  in wineries in Oregon and Napa Valley before finding Scott Labs. 

Finally, Dr. Nichola Hall has been promoted to Technical Director for the Fermentation &  Enology Department.
