In that capacity he will be responsible for all sales and distribution growth of Dobbes Family Estate, Wine By Joe and Jovino wines throughout our wholesale network in the western United States.

Most recently working with The Henry Wine Group in California, Brad has had a successful career, beginning with Young’s Market Company and from there, moving upward and representing Clos Du Bois for Allied Domecq for several years.
