A seasoned veteran in the wine industry, she has over 25 years of experience and has earned a verifiable reputation for driving outstanding results and a world-class culture of teamwork and collaboration.

Before joining TWG, Sandra was President of Treasury Wine Estates Americas, overseeing more than 1,200 employees in the US & Canada, ten wineries and 47 vineyards covering 11,600 acres in California. In her 4 year tenure, she was instrumental in helping to dramatically turn around a business that had been flailing.
