“We are excited to have Korinne Munson join the dynamic team at the Napa Valley Vintners,” noted Linda Reiff, president and CEO of the NVV. “Her commitment to excellence and strong leadership in directing communications and digital strategies will be a great asset in our continued efforts to globally position Napa Valley wines.”
