Mark Melia joined Amavi Cellars and Pepper Bridge Winery as the National Sales Manager in April of 2016. He oversees distributor sales for both of our wineries. Mark’s experience in distribution, on- and off-premise sales, working with boutique wineries, and overall passion for the wine business made him the perfect candidate to join our team.
From working in a small wine shop on Martha’s Vineyard almost thirty years ago to running the wine program at the AAA Five Diamond rated Boulders Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, Mark has an extensive background in both on and off-premise sales. Years working on the East Coast with distributors both small and large round out his experience.
An opportunity to run US sales for renowned Willamette Valley winery Penner-Ash Wine Cellars brought him to the Northwest. Mark subsequently joined Scott Paul Wines as National Sales Manager before joining us at Amavi Cellars and Pepper Bridge Winery.
We are excited to have him as a part of our team and look forward to where the future will take us together. Mark can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
