Brand Manager and Marketing Strategist at Rosenthal- The Malibu Estate Winery
Originally from Seattle, Dria started her career in wine at UC Davis and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Viticulture & Enology. Through studying winemaking in Burgundy, France and the innovative program at Davis, she has explored all facets of the wine industry from planting vines to wine production. She’s worked in wine distribution in New York City and recently returned from working for Vasse Fleix, the founding wine estate of the Margaret River, one of the leading wine brands in Australia. Throughout the last 3 years she has been developing content and marketing programs for wineries and events across the globe. Currently she is working for Rosenthal – The Malibu Estate, after starting in hospitality and front of house she has transitioned into her current role of brand management and marketing strategy.
When she is not working in wine, she’s drinking it. Dria created Wander for Wine (@wanderforwine) to develop a personal brand and platform for wine & travel writing, reviews and photography. Having a personal blog for wine drinking has given her the opportunity to focus on her passion for targeting the new generation of wine consumers, by making wine accessible and exciting to her peers and audience. Cheers!
