V2 Wine Group announced the appointment of wine industry veteran Ken Meyerson as the company’s director of national retail accounts. Meyerson, whose 17-year industry background includes top sales roles with blue chip wine companies, will oversee all sales in the national retail account arena for V2 Wine Group’s expanding portfolio which includes Dry Creek Vineyard, Qupé Wine Cellars, Steelhead Vineyards, Valley of the Moon and Toad Hollow Vineyards among other luxury brands. He will report to Scott Ericson, V2 Wine Company’s vice president, national sales manager.

“V2 Wine Group continues in a rapid growth phase and our outlook for continued expansion is nothing but optimistic,” said Dan Leese, president of V2 Wine Group. “As our portfolio of world-class wineries and brands continues to increase in size and scope, bringing on a retail professional of Ken’s caliber is an obvious next step.
