Date: 01/29/13

Saintsbury, pioneers of California Carneros Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, announces the appointment of wine industry veteran Gary Bulger as the company’s senior vice president of sales. Bulger will oversee all sales functions for the U.S. and export markets.

“Gary’s proven abilities to motivate and inspire those around him, his relationships in the marketplace and knowledge of brand strategy and history of building brands are the perfect fit for Saintsbury,” said Richard Ward, co-founder of Saintsbury.

“Throughout my 26 years in the wine industry, when I have thought of Carneros Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Saintsbury ranks at the top of the list. I look forward to working closely with Dick Ward, David Graves and the entire team at Saintsbury. By leveraging my relationships and market experience I will help shape the direction of the brand as well as take sales and distribution to the next level," said Bulger.

Prior to Saintsbury, Gary spent 17 successful years with The Hess Collection Winery.

Since 1981, Saintsbury has been committed to demonstrating that world-class Pinot Noir is a California mainstay. The winery was founded by Dick Ward and David Graves who believe innovation and a critical look at vineyard, terroir and winemaking is the best route to quality. Today with winemakers Jérôme Chéry and Chris Kajani, Saintsbury continues to pursue the “philosophy of investigation” that has helped make Saintsbury one of America’s foremost Pinot Noir producers.
