Moore will manage distributor and retail relationships for the Southeastern U.S.
Los Olivos, Calif. — Fess Parker Winery announced today the addition of wine sales veteran Jeremy Moore to its team. Moore is based in Florida and will oversee Fess Parker Winery’s distributor and retail account relationships across the Southeastern United States.
The winery, which celebrated its 30th year of business in 2019, enjoys strong distribution across the U.S. and in key Western European markets. The decision to add to its salesforce in the Southeast was led by customer support for the brand — both in retail channels and through the winery’s Wine Club.
“We’ve worked hard to grow our direct relationships in Florida and across the Southeast over the past few years,” said winery president Tim Snider. “Jeremy will be a key asset in our continued work – and continued success – in sharing Fess Parker wines with key retail partners and directly with consumers in these important geographies.”
Moore has enjoyed a more than 20-year tenure in the wine business, having begun his career at E&J Gallo’s winery training program at Grantham Distributing Company in Orlando, Florida before moving on to Premier Beverage Company as the state retail chain manager for multiple chains within the state.
Moore has spent the past nine years with direct management and sales responsibility for industry leader Walt Disney World Company, managing more than $6M in sales volume and working closely with more than 100 suppliers within the Break thru Beverage Group. He is based in Orlando.
