Napa, Calif (November 29, 2012)—Accolade Wines announced the relocation of its North American offices to Napa, CA.

“From an international perspective, Napa is the global icon as the home of America’s wine industry. It offers a greater radius of recruitment prospects for all levels of positions and provides easy access for national and international travel,” said Managing Director Tim Matz.


Under Matz’s leadership, the company has assumed sales, marketing and distribution responsibilities for all corporately held brands in the United States, including top Australian brands Hardys and Banrock Station, while simultaneously launching new portfolio offerings, including Geyser Peak “Uncensored” and Stone’s ready-to-serve cocktails. Matz will be joined in Napa by Reid Stinnett, VP Marketing, Todd Devincenzi, VP Sales, and Brent Hansston, VP Finance, among several other team members.

Reid Stinnett brings over 25 years of management and marketing experience, focused on brand building, strategy and profitability, and has successfully introduced numerous new brands and increased brand equity within the wine and food industries.

Todd DeVincenzi has deep roots with the California portfolio brands, Geyser Peak, Atlas Peak and XYZin, backed by twenty years of national sales and international trade and distributor relations.

Brent Hansston has represented agriculturally-based industries throughout his career, with concerted achievements in the wine category, including globally.

The marketing and sales team will be located in Napa, along with a significant portion of the finance group. Those more involved with the operations side of the business, including Director of Operations , Michael Jefferies and Director of Winemaking, Ondine Chattan, will remain at the Geyser Peak Winery in Geyserville, CA. Other team members have been relocated to the distribution center, also in Geyserville.

Now the world’s fifth largest wine company, Accolade Wines North America is poised for measurable expansion in the coming years.
