Director of Hospitality
Amanda was raised in the Finger Lakes wine region of New York State where she gained an early appreciation for wine and the land. A yearning for the city life lead her to study Fashion Merchandising at Philadelphia University, earning a Bachelors of Science degree, followed by her MBA to further her business acumen.
Returning to the Finger Lakes, Amanda utilized her business knowledge and passion for wine by managing a well established family owned winery. There, she quickly began to learn more about wine, the industry, and the fact that she would never stop learning, which grabbed hold and ten years later, she’s not looked back.
In 2010 Amanda had the opportunity to move to the Bay Area, and since, she has been enjoying the California lifestyle while leading high-profile boutique luxury wineries in the areas of hospitality, sales, and business development. As Director of Hospitality at Sojourn Cellars, Amanda is focused on providing exceptionally memorable experiences and personalized service to each guest.
Amanda resides in Napa with her husband Matt and two French Bulldog/Boston Terriers, Maxwell and Zoey.
