To support growth in production and increase brand presence in targeted channels, Cannonball Wine Company (www.drinkcannonball.com) has enhanced their team with new key appointments in sales and winemaking: Ken Powers as vice president business development; Heidi Maul as assistant winemaker; and the Trellis Group (www.trelliswinegroup.com), as national account partner.

Cannonball co-founder and CEO Yoav Gilat is dedicated to maintaining a strategic eye on market placement while growing his brand. “Cannonball Wines’ philosophy has always been to grow our brand through key on-premise placements and independent retail. By investing in seasoned sales professionals and enhancing our winemaking team, we can increase production without compromising quality, and maintain our distribution strategy by developing key national restaurant accounts and new channels.”

Dennis Hill, Cannonball Wine Company winemaker and co-founder, has found his perfect pairing with the hiring of Heidi Morgan Maul as assistant winemaker. "Heidi brings to Cannonball the perfect level of expertise and a focus on the details that make the difference in quality winemaking. Her employment with Cannonball will allow us to maintain our hands-on wine cellar management and our uncompromising commitment to quality and wine style, as well as to continue our prospective growth plans."

Maul comes to Cannonball with over a decade of winemaking experience. She is a proven whiz in the lab from her years as enologist at Sonoma Cutrer and lab technician at Fetzer. She will be Hill’s right hand in running Cannonball winemaking operations and lab.
