Whitehall Lane Winery and the Leonardini Family of St. Helena have announced the hiring of Leah Carlton as their new National Sales Director. She started on January 2, 2014.
Ms. Carlton is excited by the prospect of expanding national distribution while growing this ultra premium Napa Valley winery. The growth will come from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and their proprietary red blend, Tre Leoni.
Ms. Carlton has more than 17 years of wine business experience with wineries and distributors. She recently was the General Manager of Valley of the Sun Fine Wines, a mid-sized fine wine distributor in Arizona and most recently as a regional sales manager for Majestic Fine Wines (Jackson Family Wines).
She takes strong business, management and sales skills to Whitehall Lane Winery where she will direct a sales team of four and take the winery to the next level. The winery owns and farms 150 acres of grapes in seven vineyard properties and also purchases fruit from select growers in Napa Valley.
