Originally from Long Beach, CA, Lisa moved to the Napa Valley in 1994 to pursue a passion for food and wine. Initially working in restaurants (Martini House), and then retail (Dean & Deluca), she then transitioned onto winery hospitality at Handley Cellars in the Anderson Valley.
Along the way, Lisa earned certification from the Court of Master Sommeliers as a Level 1 Somm. She continues her education through group tastings, self-study, and impassioned discussion with fellow wine lovers on all topics from sparkling wines (Champagne!) to Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, and everything in between.
Lisa joined the Dunstan team in October 2020.
