“We are thrilled to see Cynthia thrive in her career here at Don Sebastiani & Sons,” said President, Donny Sebastiani. “It is important to our family to strive to promote from within and we are lucky to have such a team of bright and energetic employees. Cynthia has been an exceptional member of our team and our brands are seeing strong growth, sales and are positioned for success – much of this is due to Cynthia’s keen Marketing eye and strategic rationale,” he added.

Ms. Gomez previously worked in Marketing roles for Trinchero Family Estates as well as Treasury Wine Estates. Since joining Don Sebastiani & Sons in 2017, she has been pivotal in creating a strong Marketing direction for Don Sebastiani & Sons.
