We Make It!

We Sell It!

We’re passionate about our farming, and we know we make great wine — but we’d be lost without the very talented people who make sure we sell enough of it to keep going. They are responsible for a wide range of activities and operations as detailed below.

Sales to The Trade

Meet the small but mighty group of people who make sure our wines are available in all 50 states and 11 countries — developing and maintaining relationships with key accounts, brokers and distributors.

Consumer Sales & Marketing

Leading all aspects of consumer interaction and engagement, we’re fortunate to have a clever and nimble team guiding efforts that range from our winery tasting room to our virtual tastings. And our website. And our Fellowship, not to mention special events and client outreach. It’s a broad category affectionately referred to in the industry as Direct to Consumer.
