Mark Burris — President Mark is the President of both Redwood Empire Wine Storage and Eagle Transportation. “Our business concept is pretty simple — quality sells and that, with service to our customers and their needs, is first and foremost. If I were to sum up our success working and meeting the needs of our customers in the wine industry, it would have to be the dedicated hard work and devotion of the employees of Eagle Transportation and Redwood Empire Wine Storage. Without the employees and the dedicated partners that I have in both companies, this would all be a moot point. For that I am grateful, because it is their drive and dedication that motivates me and gets me excited about working in this industry.”

His maternal great grandparents settled on the Westside of the Russian River below what was to become Healdsburg. The family lineage eventually extended across the river to the Eastside where Will grew up surrounded by prune orchards. As the orchards turned to vineyards, he became witness to the birth of the modern day Sonoma County wine industry. Will’s career in the wine business began when the legendary winemaker Rodney Strong acquired the home ranch upon which he lived. He has worked in the wine business ever since and now those many years of experience are being fully utilized in the expanding services being offered by Redwood.
