    Vet­er­an in the Lux­u­ry Wine Cat­e­go­ry Attract­ed to Fam­i­ly-Owned Brand’s Com­mit­ment to Qual­i­ty and Indus­try Leadership

    San Jose, Calif – June 20, 2017 – Steve Doyle joins J. Lohr Vine­yards & Wines as vice pres­i­dent, US sales. A high­ly respect­ed indus­try exec­u­tive, with more than three decades of expe­ri­ence, Doyle will lead J. Lohr’s in-house sales team in rep­re­sent­ing the acclaimed fam­i­ly- owned win­ery through­out the Unit­ed States. Doyle was select­ed for his expan­sive knowl­edge of the US mar­ket, his abil­i­ty to design and imple­ment indus­try-lead­ing sales pro­grams, and his exten­sive exper­tise in the pre­mi­um and lux­u­ry wine categories.

    Through­out my career, I have had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work with some of the wine industry’s most suc­cess­ful larg­er com­pa­nies,” says Doyle. I have also been for­tu­nate to work with fam­i­ly- run winer­ies and entre­pre­neur­ial orga­ni­za­tions. J. Lohr embod­ies the best of all of these dynam­ics — in scale and scope. At the same time, there is an unwa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to craft and qual­i­ty that reflects the val­ues that dri­ve the Lohr family.”

    Doyle was most recent­ly vice pres­i­dent, nation­al sales man­ag­er for C. Mon­davi & Fam­i­ly. Pri­or to that, he was the senior vice pres­i­dent, sales, mar­ket­ing and oper­a­tions for Ter­roir Inc., where he guid­ed sales for brands that includ­ed May­a­ca­mas, Sand­hi, Qupe, and Wind Gap. Through­out his career, Doyle has also held posi­tions as the vice pres­i­dent of sales for Vin­mo­tion, senior vice pres­i­dent of sales for Pacif­ic Wine Part­ners, Pacif­ic divi­sion vice pres­i­dent for South­corp Wines, and divi­sion­al vice pres­i­dent at Dia­geo. Doyle holds a degree in mar­ket­ing from Indi­ana State Uni­ver­si­ty and an MBA from Pep­per­dine University.

    Our ded­i­cat­ed sales team, with its com­mit­ment to build­ing last­ing part­ner­ships with our nation­al net­work of dis­trib­u­tors, has always been a cor­ner­stone of our suc­cess,” says J. Lohr CEO Steve Lohr. Steve Doyle has a keen under­stand­ing of the com­plex­i­ties of today’s wine mar­ket­place. He has a belief in build­ing win-win rela­tion­ships with our val­ued part­ners, many of whom we have had rela­tion­ships with since my father start­ed the busi­ness. Just as impor­tant, Steve is respect­ed and well-liked by his indus­try col­leagues and shares the val­ues that define J. Lohr as a fam­i­ly-owned brand. My father, sis­ter, broth­er and I, along with our tal­ent­ed team of wine­mak­ers and fel­low employ­ees, look for­ward to work­ing close­ly with Steve to smart­ly build our brand.”
