Novak, who began her career at Jackson Family Wines, is relocating from Sonoma County to Napa. Her most recent experience was at Rodney Strong Wine Estates where she led the marketing efforts, launched the Davis Bynum winery, developed national advertising campaigns and played an integral part in the repositioning and refocusing of the Rodney Strong brand.
