Ryan has been in the wine industry for over 20 years in the Walla Walla district.

Ryan stated “I love the tradition of cork, and because of that, I’ve always 

used natural cork for my own wines. Now, I am eager to have the opportunity to be on the suppliers’ side and spread the gospel of cork for my fellow comrades!” M. A. Silva looks forward to having Ryan as part of its growing team and the knowledge base he brings.
