Posted on December 15, 2017

Santa Maria, CA - Family-owned grower and producer, Turn Key Wine Brands, is pleased to welcome wine industry-veteran, Kara VanCorbach, to the team as In-House Control Label Sales Manager.

Born and raised on the Central Coast, VanCorbach brings over 18 years of industry experience to her new role as In-House Control Label Sales Manager. Beginning her career at Fess Parker Winery & Vineyard, VanCorbach has since worked in multiple sales channels within the wine industry, including direct-to-consumer, distribution, and national and regional retail sales. After moving to the Bay Area to further her career in sales selling engineering equipment, she worked weekends at Wente Vineyards in Livermore, “because I missed the wine industry,” she explains. Upon returning to the Central Coast, VanCorbach went back to the wine industry full-time, most recently working as Sales Manager at Terravant Wine Company, where she sold private label and control brands nationwide.

VanCorbach brings extensive sales experience, knowledge and passion for the local wine industry to her new role, stating she is “excited to continue building relationships and successful brand programs for Turn Key Wine Brands’ respected clients.”

Aside from working in the wine business, VanCorbach enjoys cooking and baking, birdwatching, photography, hiking, and spending time with family, friends, and her three cats.

Turn Key Wine Brands’ diversified portfolio includes premium bulk wine and market-ready private label wine. A division of Thornhill Companies, Turn Key Wine Brands is owned by the Miller Family, who have been farming California’s Central Coast for five generations. Thornhill Companies includes J. Wilkes Wines and Smashberry Wines, Turn Key Wine Brands, custom crush facilities Central Coast Wine Services and Paso Robles Wine Services, and a portfolio of Central Coast vineyards.
