(Napa, Calif.)— May 21, 2019—Signorello Estate, a luxury Napa Valley winery, today announced that Tiffany Kenny has joined Signorello Estate and the Ray Signorello Family of Wines as Sales and Marketing Director. In this newly created position, Kenny will oversee the vision, marketing strategy and branding for Signorello Estate, as well as its sister brands Fuse, Edge and Trim. She is also responsible for leadership and strategic vision across all DTC channels, including the winery’s visitor experiences, allocation program, key market events and culinary experiences.

Kenny’s hiring comes just weeks after the appointment of the new winemaking team of Priyanka French as winemaker, Celia Welch as consulting director of winemaking and Steve Matthiasson as viticulturalist.

Ray Signorello, proprietor of Signorello Estate, stated “the silver lining of the fires is that I have the opportunity to take what I’ve learned in my 30 plus years of experience in the wine industry, build on what was already a very successful winery and take everything to the next level. I’ve hired the best winemaking and viticulture team and will be building a state-of-the-art winery and caves. Tiffany has extensive experience in the luxury wine marketing and DTC sales, making her the ideal person to help us refine our brand strategy as we rebuild and communicate the winery’s forward-looking message.”
