Paso Robles, Calif.—Paso Robles producer, Hope Family Wines has promoted Rachael Rosenbloom to Division Vice President, Retail Chains for national accounts -  leading its efforts to expand growth in the grocery channel. Rachael has managed all channels of business in Southern California for Hope Family Wines since 2016.  

“We are so fortunate to have someone of Rachael’s skill set to help us achieve our long term goals.  She has a proven track record for success within California and now it’s time to take that success nationally.” Stated Senior Vice President of Sales, Michael Mestas. 

Rosenbloom began working in the wine industry for Young’s Market Company as a Chain Sales Representative and District Manager. She then moved on to Delicato Family Vineyards as their Southern California Chain Market Manager. She began her tenure with Hope Family in 2016 as Chain Merchandising Manager. “I am thrilled to continue to be a part of a company like Hope Family Wines.  Our commitment to setting the standard for Paso Robles luxury Cabernet and working toward our long term goal to strengthen our distribution nationally is a challenge I look forward to.” Rosenbloom stated. “Our wines have caught the attention of the California wine community and I can’t wait to spread that excitement across the country.”

Also joining the Hope Family’s team is Andrea Kelly, she will take on the role of Regional Sales Manager – Pacific.  She will oversee California, Hawaii & Nevada.  “With the addition of Andrea in the Pacific Region our team continues to strengthen as we all work together to Define Paso Robles Wine Country” says Austin Hope. 


Rooted in a vision to grow grapes and make great wine in what was once a little-known wine region, Hope Family Wines makes a variety of offerings that reflect the unique terrain and exceptional environmental assets of Paso Robles. 

Owner, Austin Hope grew up in Paso Robles working alongside his father Chuck Hope, inheriting his love and respect for the region. He led the family’s move into winemaking in 1995 and thus began his exploration into the potential of Paso Robles wine country. 

Today, Austin is showcasing an even greater sweep of the Paso region and expressing a similar richness with the Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon – The 2017 vintage recently was listed on the 2019 “Enthusiast Top 100” as the #10 top wine of the world, an award never previously given to a Paso Robles wine.  Austin oversees the production of Austin Hope, Treana, Liberty School, Troublemaker, and Quest wines. Though driven by exploration and innovation, Austin’s vision remains:  to make wines that reflect all that Paso has to offer and inspire people to be as excited about Paso Robles as Austin himself.
