Merryvale Vineyards and Starmont Winery promoted Tom Reese to national sales manager. Reese will be directly responsible for sales operations for both the Starmont and Merryvale brands throughout the U.S.
Reese has been with Merryvale for over five years as national accounts manager, following five years with Clos du Val Winery as both a regional and national accounts manager. Prior to that, Reese worked with Caravelle Imports, Sebastiani Winery, and Young’s Market Company to round out his extensive career in the wine industry. He comes into this role at an exciting time as Merryvale and Starmont are poised for strong growth in the wholesale channel.
“We are happy to have Tom in this expanded role as he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in wholesale management to this position that he has acquired throughout his more than 30-year career,” said Mark Evans, COO of Merryvale and Starmont.
