Press Release: Winesecrets Wins 2013 Veteran Employer of the Year Award


Date: 03/28/13

Sebastopol, CA--March 26, 2013--American Winesecrets, LLC. (Winesecrets), North America’s leading wine filtration company, has been awarded the Veteran Employer of the Year by the California Employer Advisory Council (CEAC) in the Small Private Business category. The CEAC Veterans Employer of the Year award recognizes employers who consistently demonstrate positive policies toward U.S. veterans in hiring and promotion, as well as through retention efforts, ongoing training, and benefits.

Winesecrets earned the award for its recruitment efforts, training and successful placement of veterans in Sonoma County. Past award winners include PG&E, the FBI and Time Warner Cable.
Winesecrets has 15 employees, 12 of which are in technical roles. The company has developed an on-job-training program to provide incoming employees with industry specific skills while working at its wine production facility in Sebastopol, California. Winesecrets is committed to hiring and training veterans in these entry-level roles and then assisting them with placement in more prominent roles in the local wine industry.

Winesecrets has hired seven veterans since January 2011, five of whom were discharged in the last five years. While most were hired into technical roles, veterans have also filled administrative and marketing roles at the company. Of the veteran hires, two have advanced to more challenging roles at local wineries while four remain with the company.

The veteran hiring program and out-placement efforts have been spearheaded by Winesecrets president Eric T. Dahlberg (US Army, 1986 – 1989). According to Dahlberg, veterans arrive with an outstanding skill set, including technical and computer literacy, mechanical aptitude and motivation to excel at blue-collar jobs. “I am pleased that our company is able to serve those who have served,” he said.

Winesecrets was nominated by Claudio Calvo, the Sonoma County veteran employment representative for the State of California Employment Development Department (EDD). According to Mr. Calvo, “Winesecrets is a perfect example of an employer reaching out to help veterans, especially those recently discharged. Veterans feel proud to be associated with this outstanding organization.”

Winesecrets will be honored at the 2013 CEAC Veterans Employer of the Year luncheon award ceremony on May 9, 2013 in Ontario.

Winesecrets offers outsourced wine production services, to include specialized filtration, high-proof alcohol sales, and bulk wine storage.
