Our winery family is growing this summer. We are pleased to introduce you to Brian Catlett, who recently joined Frank Family Vineyards as our new Wine Club Manager. A California native, Brian developed his passion for wine and customer service early in his career.
He was first introduced to the wine industry while working in the tasting room at Benziger Winery in Sonoma, originally as a tasting room associate before working his way up to Assistant Tasting Room Manager.
Living and working in Sonoma County exposed Brian’s palette to Pinot Noir. His love for the varietal drew him to Oregon’s Willamette Valley. After a year working in hospitality with luxury producer, Archery Summit, it was Brian’s first love of Napa wines that ultimately brought him back home. Back in his home-state, Brian rediscovered the beauty of Napa Cabernet while working at Clos Pegase in Calistoga and most recently as the Wine Club Manager at Merryvale Vineyards in Saint Helena. Brian brings with him a wealth of experience in wine club management as well as a natural talent for forming strong relationships and we’re excited to see his skills continue to grow our wine club program.
He resides in Santa Rosa, California, where he’s lived for the past 24 years. Brian and his wife travel often, exploring the wine regions abroad as well as in his own backyard. He also enjoys creating art, hiking, and mountain biking whenever he can.
