BACk TO TEAM PAGE Lisa Stewart Regional Sales Manager - South East

Short bio

I was born and raised in Atlanta spending my summers in Vermont. I started in the Industry in college going from promotions to distributor to supplier (where I’ve spent the last 12 years). Outside of my love for selling, I am an avid league tennis player, lover of outdoor concerts and an enthusiastic college football and baseball fan. I love to travel and enjoy meeting new people along the way.

Where have you lived?

Atlanta, Lake St Catherine VT (summers}, Jacksonville FL, Orlando and back to Atlanta

 First Car

1972 Green Dodge Dart…bench front seat named “Green Hornet 1” {yes… there actually was another one on campus}

How did you start in the wine business?

I got my start in the business working through college as a Miller and St Pauli Girl. The local distributor started allowing me to sell kegs on campus and then they asked for assistance introducing something called a “wine cooler.” After graduation, I put my teaching career on hold, to sell Wine, promising my parents this was just a temporary gig. Well 20+ years later here I am selling incredible wine using that “teaching degree” the whole time!!

I have had the good fortune of many fantastic wine experiences with vineyard owners throughout the years.
