Adobe Road Winery Appoints New Senior Vice President of Sales


Winery adds a veteran wine executive to leadership team  

April 8th —(Petaluma, Calif.)— Renowned family-owned producer, Adobe Road Winery is pleased to announce that Brian Kelleher has been appointed Senior Vice President of Sales. His 20+ years of sales experience in the industry make him a great fit for Adobe Road Winery’s quest to deepen its reach in today’s competitive wine market. Kelleher was previously employed by Elizabeth Spencer Winery in Napa, as their General Manager and Pahlmeyer winery prior to that. During his tenure at Pahlmeyer, he held several positions; the most recent was Vice President, Sales and Marketing where he was responsible for sales, marketing, and strategic planning development while being a member of the senior leadership team.

Passionate about wine, Kelleher is a perfect fit to oversee the sales operation, according to CEO & Founder Kevin Buckler. “Having Brian’s expertise will be an outstanding addition to the Adobe Road family. He brings a wealth of knowledge and luxury wine experience to the role, and he will lead our national sales team as we continue to grow and expand throughout the country.”

Historically, Adobe Road Winery has been a boutique winery, delivering its full-bodied, hand-crafted, award-winning wines to enthusiasts by way of its website, distributors, and top industry retail outlets. Bucker feels Kelleher’s new role will be to expand that presence and reach new outlets while amplifying the brand throughout the US.

“The increase in visibility will fuel greater consumer brand recognition and acquaint more people with our portfolio of fine wines and our infamous Racing Series wines. We want to showcase the quality of our craft and attract new fans from the tasting room to our special events,” Buckler said.
