When we first started out in 2005, Sean was our only salesperson. With a ton of help along the way, we’ve been fortunate to grow our number of accounts, distributor partnerships, loyal customers, and of course, our amazing team.
Will Bucklin continues to be our consulting winemaker, as he collaborates with Sean during the winemaking process of all of our wines. Will is a graduate of UC Davis' prestigious enology program and started his career with an internship at the historic and world-renowned Chateau Lafite Rothschild. Following stints with Thomas Hardy in Australia and Navarro Vineyards in Mendocino, he worked with Sean at King Estate in Oregon. Together, Will and Sean work closely with the vineyards we contract and their collaborative efforts create the consistent wines we sell today.
With Sean still leading our sales team, he’s supported by our Vice Presidents of Sales Stuart Barker, who handles our West Coast markets, Larry Soble, who covers the South East, and Sean Frazier, who takes care of the North East. They spend much of their time on the road and have brought Sean Minor Wines to 49 states. Nicole, based out of our Sacramento headquarters, heads up all marketing efforts and is accompanied by Barbara Ellison in Accounting, Sue Harrington, our Sales and Marketing Coordinator, and Kristi Spector, our Customer Relations Liaison, who work to provide the best service to our wine club members and customers.
We would be nothing without our team and each person embodies all that Sean Minor Wines stands for. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that we all have similar values - wine being at the top of the list.
