In August, Napa Valley’s family-run Chappellet Winery promoted Mitch Boyd to the newly created position of Vice President of Global Sales. Jacob Jata has been promoted to Director of Sales, East; April Collins has been hired as Director of Sales, West; and Amy Chappellet is now in the new position of Director of Trade Relations. As the respective directors of sales for the eastern and western halves of the U.S., both Jata and Collins will report to Boyd and will be supported in their markets by Chappellet and by Trade Support Manager Lindsey Gorfine. Jata, who joined Chappellet in 2018, has held positions as the Wine Director at Ariadne Restaurant in Massachusetts, where he worked with Master Sommelier Chuck Furuya; as a Territory Manager for Florida-based Johnson Brothers Liquor Company; and as a Sales Representative in the Connoisseur Division at Martignetti Companies. Collins comes to Chappellet with more than two decades of experience in both the winery and distributor sides of the industry.
