Exclusive: Treasury Wine Estates Americas Taps Wine Group Veteran As New Chief WinemakerOctober 11, 2013
Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) has named Adam Richardson vice president and chief winemaker for its Americas brands, Shanken News Daily has learned. Richardson will oversee winemaking for Treasury’s U.S. labels, which include Beringer Vineyards, Chateau St. Jean, Stags’ Leap Winery, Etude, Souverain, St. Clement and Meridian Vineyards, among others.
Joining Treasury with 25 years of winemaking and management experience, Richardson most recently served as winemaker for The Wine Group’s Cupcake brand. Prior to that, he held winemaking roles at both Concannon Vineyard and E.&J. Gallo Winery. Richardson’s appointment comes amidst a turbulent period for TWE, which recently dismissed CEO David Dearie and has been busy revamping its Americas team, including the hiring of Jim Casey as vice president, East Division and Shannon Grant as vice president, Central Division, in recent weeks.Tagged : Treasury Wine Estates
