Penner-Ash Wine Cellars is pleased to announce that Jane Box has been named Direct Sales & Marketing Manager. Jane will be playing an integral role in positioning the Penner-Ash brand, with an emphasis on direct-to-consumer sales.
Jane brings many years of experience and success in the hospitality, fine wine, and culinary world to the Penner-Ash family. Her early interest in hospitality and travel took her on an around-the-world journey which ended in San Francisco with a position as Restaurant Manager for the San Francisco Mariott Hotel. Following her position at the hotel, Jane transferred to the world of fine wine as a Portfolio Manager for Southern Wines & Spirits. Shortly thereafter, she was recruited to the industry’s leading supplier of luxury champagne, wine and spirits at Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy USA. After moving to New York City in 2011, Jane founded Janie’s Kitchen LLC, an online cooking website and personal chef consultancy.
The magnetic lure of artisanal wine led Jane back into the wine world after meeting Lynn and Ron Penner-Ash. “Beyond Jane’s early success with international brands in both hospitality and sales, she comes to Penner-Ash with exceptional communication skills, proven strategic creativity and a passion for all things food and wine,” said proprietor Ron Penner-Ash.
Jane says she found her way to the wine business through her appetite. Working her way through college as a line chef, Jane’s greatest reward at the end of a shift was a good glass of wine. Her lifelong passion for food and wine are a perfect fit for the Penner-Ash philosophy of “living in the moment”; celebrating wine as food and with food, with family and friends around the dinner table.
