With decades of experience between them, these team members each bring a wealth of experience and talents to Scheid Family Wines.


Anthony Marzella comes to Scheid Family Wines with over 30 years of industry experience. In his most recent position, Marzella worked as the Northeast Division Manager for Quintessential Wines, with an emphasis in serving the New York/New Jersey corridor.

In this capacity, she worked with local hotels and businesses as well as charitable and non-profit organizations, introducing them to the Scheid portfolio and creating mutually beneficial partnerships. Chira-Garcia’s dedication to Scheid and her passion for the wine industry led to her new role as Sales Representative in Monterey to develop and support businesses from Moss Landing to Big Sur and Salinas to Carmel. “We’re enthusiastic about the growth in our own backyard,” stated Stephen. “Nancy brings a unique and informed perspective to her role serving the local community in which she lives.” Chira-Garcia resides in Carmel, California.
