Staff Spotlight: Meet Adriana
What’s your favorite hobby?
Hiking is my prime pastime. My partner and I like to explore forests that surround the bay area.
What’s something people would be surprised to know about you?
I was studying to be an ASL interpreter pre-covid and before getting into this industry.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
I would like to fly. Whenever I’m hiking on a mountain or cliff side I always think how cool it would be to just glide down or soar around and see the full scenery…. also, it’d save me a ton on gas.
What do you like about the industry?
The cool thing about this industry is its more than just wine, there are so many aspects, positions, and needs that you wouldn’t think about just splashing a day away in Napa. This industry is agriculture, technology, science, networking, marketing, and media. This industry has so much depth and room to learn and find a position and company you can be truly passionate about.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given
Take losses as lessons rather than taking them to heart.
In another life, I was probably…
a farmer. It’s the lifestyle I’ve always loved and it’s a goal for me to have a sustainable farm in the future.
If we had a talent show, I’d…
wow you all with my old color guard flag, I still know a few spins and tosses. Those are always fun.
