Katie Griesbeck brings more than 15 years of marketing experience and a deep passion for wine to her role as National Sales & Marketing Director for Cakebread Cellars.
Originally born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Katie has called many areas of the country home before planting roots among the California vineyards. While pursuing her Communication degree at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, Katie spent a semester abroad in the Burgundy region of France where she fell in love at first wine sip. After several years of working in public relations for the technology industry in Washington, DC, Katie went back to school at the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business before following the wine sirens out west. Prior to joining the Cakebread team, Katie worked in sales and marketing at E & J Gallo Winery and Constellation Brands.
In addition to enjoying wine with friends and family, Katie loves exploring all that the Golden State has to offer, from coast to mountains and all cultural adventures in between. True to her Memphis roots, she's an avid music fan and loves to attend concerts and collect vinyl records of all genres.
