Ann Spitzenberger, Controller

As a Midwesterner my first wine memories are of Lancers, Black Tower and Annie Green Springs. I'm happy to announce I've come a long way. I was born a Nebraska Cornhusker who left the cold, snowy winters for sunny California where I finished my college education and eventually obtained an MBA at Santa Clara University. My work experience in the world of finance include 3M, Seagram (now Diageo) and Bonny Doon Vineyard among others. Working in the wine industry has given me an appreciation for the convergence of art, wine and food. My main squeeze is my furry feline Teddy. I'm an ardent but amateur photographer, consider myself a runner (more like a fast shuffle these days), like to travel and believe good food, good wine and great friends are the main ingredients of a happy life.
