Wine Industry Veteran Steve Tamburelli Appointed President of Clos Du Val


Date: 07/30/14

Clos Du Val Winery has appointed industry veteran Steve Tamburelli as president of the winery, overseeing all operations for the historic winery located in Napa Valley’s celebrated Stags Leap District. Tamburelli brings decades of experience, innovation and leadership to his role.

A Napa Valley native, Tamburelli has spent his entire life working in and around the wine industry developing a comprehensive knowledge of the wine business and his deep passion for wine. He has held many executive roles in the wine business overseeing finance, sales and marketing, winegrowing and production. Tamburelli joined Stags Leap Wine Cellars as chief operating officer in 1998, spent eleven years as general manager at Chappellet and most recently held the role of chief operating officer at Flora Springs Winery.

“Clos Du Val has a 40+ year legacy in the Napa Valley. I am looking forward to working with the winery team to energize the winery for its next 40 years,” he said. “We’re excited to release the 2012 and 2013 wines, made by winemaker Kristy Melton, and show off the quality investments the winery has focused on over the last four years.”

Tamburelli got his start in wine as a high school student working for his family’s wine distribution business. After earning an MBA from the University of Santa Clara, Tamburelli joined the family business full-time, acting as general manager until they sold the company in the late 1990s. Tamburelli lives in the Napa Valley with his wife, Lynne, and son, Bill.
