Michelle Cove joins the Soter Vineyards Team as National Sales Associate. Her passion for the wine industry began more than a decade ago in her early years at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. With this new enthusiasm, she chose her minor in Viticulture and Enology with a focus on Wine Marketing. Michelle began her hands on experience in various rolls working at Talley Vineyards and Claiborne and Churchill Winery. With the ambition of experiencing it all, she has managed to participate in everything from punch downs with the crew, running the day to day of a winery, sales with a distributor and most recently managing a small portfolio of Oregon wines as the Southwest Regional Manager. Michelle will work directly in conjunction with Brian Sypher at Soter Vineyards (Director of Sales & Marketing), who continues to oversee National, Export and Direct Sales for the Winery.
