White Birch Vineyards welcomes Bre Van Vort, who was born and raised in Santa Barbara in the heart of the Central Coast Wine Country. She brings knowledge and experience from both the West Coast & East Coast wine regions. Working at large scale and boutique wineries in CA and helped build a Brand, Sales & Wine Club in Connecticut.
Getting started in the wine industry first in the Santa Rite Hills AVA at Babcock Winery & Vineyards. Working with Bryan Babcock who was named "James Beard Top Ten Winemakers in the Word" taught her a lot about terroir, revolutionary farming and her passion for wine and sales.
After getting a great grasp of the wine industry she was promoted to Events Coordinator at Koehler Winery & Vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley AVA. But being married to a winemaker and a passion for travel ended up bringing her and her husband to the East Coast where they "teamed up" at Priam Vineyards in Connecticut. Making a great team they won "Winery of the Year" from NY International and also winning Bronze & Gold Medals for their wines in a handful of international competitions.
Bre is very excited to bring new ideas and events to the White Birch Vineyards Tasting Room and to learn more about Finger Lakes Wines to share all of her knowledge with our wonderful customers.
