Their Story

Transitioning from a career in law enforcement to owning a winery can’t be an easy thing, but Randy Biehl made it happen. He was a U.S. probation and parole officer for almost 25 years and developed a passion for wine in his early 30s. He later decided he wanted to plant a vineyard and open a winery.

Going on a recommendation from his son, to get his winery going, he called Guidant Financial.

“I have been very impressed with the level of service, the professionalism, and friendliness of Guidant staff and management,” said Biehl.

Biehl also endured an IRS audit, but came through with flying colors.

“An IRS audit is very unsettling but Guidant stood by me every step of the way and that brought me great comfort. We were successful!”

He likens caring for a vineyard to gardening because “a great garden takes great care and so does a great vineyard.” He mentions that his life and his spare time are all consumed by his love for wine, “You know you have a passion when your hobby becomes your vocation.”
