Direct to Consumer Manager
Our new Direct to Consumer Manager, Leanne Jones, came to us in June of 2016. Originally from Salinas, CA, Leanne attended college at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo where she studied Communications. Like others at Jeff Cohn Cellars, the wine industry was not her first choice. It was not until after graduation that Leanne realized her true passion was wine.
In 2013, she left her job in corporate sales to begin a career in the wine industry. She was thirsty for wine knowledge, and began studying for certifications quickly, starting with Certified Specialist of Wine. Fast forward to now, Leanne is a Certified Sommelier with an even bigger passion and thirst for everything wine. She has worked for boutique, family-owned wineries along with a local wine and cheese retailer. Leanne’s passion recently steered her to Australia where she worked as a cellar intern for the 2016 vintage.
Leanne and her fiancé, Tyler, live in Concord with their 2 chocolate labs, Brix and Macie. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, biking and swimming.
