Gene Walder

Founder & CEO

Gene Walder is the President and co-owner of Vintage Cellars and Vintage Wine Cellars. Gene started Vintage Cellars literally out of his garage in 1990. After 20+ years as a wine merchant and wine bar owner, Gene and Cira decided to move down to San Diego to start their family and grow their new custom wine cellar and wine storage equipment businesses. Through incredibly hard work and persistence, Vintage Cellars is still alive and thriving 28 years later with over 2,000 gorgeous custom wine cellars designed and built! Gene is a proud husband and father to three sons, and lives in the countryside in Valley Center, California. Gene loves being in the mountains, getting creative in the kitchen, and enjoying time spent with his wife and sons.
