A native of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Danielle was headed for a career in retail management when she discovered the world of wine. When she learned she could forge a career in it, she dove in head first, first working in sales, but eventually gaining experience in both the cellar and the tasting room. In 2011, she rounded out her on-the-job training by earning the WSET Advanced Sommelier certification. Danielle joined Rombauer in 2014 as our Pacific Northwest Sales Manager. Her territory has grown, and now as our Western States Sales Manager, she is often on the road sharing her love of wine; she can also be found running, reading and quoting John Hughes films!
