Meet the Staff

Jenny – Our Manager.  Jenny made her first batch of wine two weeks after the North Austin winery opened its doors in October 2005.  She started working at Water 2 Wine in February 2006 and is now the heart and soul of the operation.  Jenny is also the voice of our store – you can hear her on several local radio stations throughout the year encouraging our customers to drop by for a visit.  She has an encyclopedic memory for all things wine and movie related. Favorite varietal: All.

Chris – Our Trainer and Winemaker.  Chris made his first batch of wine in February 2007 and liked the product so much that he joined the staff in August 2009.  Chris perfected the art of wine making in his first two years with the winery using his meticulous approach to the craft and attention to detail.  He now imparts that production knowledge to new franchisees going through our training program.  Chris has travelled extensively in Italy and has a special knowledge of Italian wines.  Favorite varietal: Barbera.

Sheri – Our Assistant Manager.  Sheri was introduced to Water 2 Wine by her future husband in December 2005.  She liked the wine so much that she accepted his proposal of marriage the next day.  She relocated to Austin, became a Wine Club member, and then joined the staff in August of 2010.  Sheri enjoys teaching our wine classes, is our in-house art department, and has a tremendous knowledge of the wine growing regions of the world, wine varietals, and the characteristics of our wines.  Favorite varietal: Anything Italian.

Kelly – Our Marketing and Media Specialist.  Kelly was introduced to Water 2 Wine when she took a wine tasting class with her husband in the summer of 2010.  She liked the product so much that she joined the Wine Club that day and became a regular customer.  Kelly joined the staff in August 2012 and quickly became an expert on label design, assisted with production, and became a reliable source for new and innovative ideas to better market our products.  She also enjoys teaching classes and sharing her rather extensive knowledge of wine with our customers.  Favorite varietal: Red.

Dustin – Our Winemaker.  Dustin was introduced to Water 2 Wine by his sister (Kelly) in the spring of 2011.  He joined our staff as a part-time Production Manager in September 2012.  Over the next several months, under Chris’ guidance, he became a skilled winemaker in his own right and now runs the production area.  Dustin also assists in the front of the winery, teaches classes, and helps us craft our bi-weekly newsletter using his excellent command of the English language and droll sense of humor.  Favorite varietal: South African Chenin Blanc
