We are pleased to announce Dawna Ertel as the newest member of the Pamo Valley team!

Dawna is focused on providing tasting notes and recommendations for optimal enjoyment of Pamo Valley wines, for all wine lovers from novice to expert.  A longtime wine enthusiast, Dawna has developed her palate through her studies and pursuit of a Wine Technology certification.  In addition to tasting and reviewing, Dawna also assists with winery operations where an extra hand is needed, from crush to bottling.  Dawna lives in Cardiff by the Sea, and plans to open a wine bar in Encinitas with her husband Adam.  As strong supporters of local business, they will feature a section focused on Ramona wineries.

Born and raised in Sonoma County, Dawna was destined to love and appreciate viniculture.  Her career history ranges outside the wine industry: she has worked for major specialty retailers in merchandising and planning roles, and is currently co-owner of a sales and marketing organization that partners with select manufacturers to drive business in retail stores nationwide.
