Given the self-actualizing premise that Corporations are People, I’d like to introduce myself, HDVine LLC; and, by association, my CEO, Sarah Pistone, who helped me prepare this.
I got my name in 2021.  “HD” hails back to my CEO’s prior company, Horizon Designs LLC, and the Hi-Def nature of the mapping work we do, as well as “Vine” for our niche in vineyard development.  But if you really want to know about me, go back to 2003 when Bill Lincoln created LincolnAE LLC to design vineyards and irrigation systems.  Sarah created Horizon Designs LLC in 2016 to take over Bill’s Lake County clients, then bought the rest of LincolnAE in 2018, and consolidated the two in 2021.  

What is the last (or current) show you binge-watched?

  • The last show I binge-watched was a seminar on erosion control from the International Erosion Control Association.  Sarah has a CPESC (certified professional in erosion and sediment control) and we needed the credits for annual renewal.

Is there a product you can’t live without?

  • Oh man, the product I couldn’t live without is my Trimble TDC600 GPS and R2 Antenna with CenterPoint RTX Real-Time Correction Services.  It’s so cool.  With good satellite visibility we typically get 2 cm horizontal and 5 cm vertical accuracies anywhere in the world and without needing any internet or cell service. 

What’s your ideal weekend or fav. thing to do in the Bay Area?

  • All my gear and people are usually resting on the weekends, but I do have some favorite spots around the Bay.  In Napa County we like quick stops at the Soda Canyon Store, don’t miss this pupusa truck, and Sunshine Market makes a killer fried chicken torta.  If we’re done early Happy Hour at Charter Oak is a special treat and in Suisun Valley (Solano County), Larry’s Produce has an extensive selection veggies and tropical fruits.

That’s about it for now.  coLAB has a been a great place to grow and try out new ideas.
