Always Growing: Laura

the Blog

August 27, 2022

Do you have someone in your life who guides, teaches, and gives you advice from the heart? I am so lucky to have Laura~ my friend, mentor, & today’s “always growing” feature.

Laura & I met in 2010 when she started selling my Ortman Family Vineyards wines in California. We immediately clicked over our love of motherhood, food, and Pinot Noir.

“As soon as I started wine sales, I knew I never needed another career change. I love the flexibility and working with accounts.” She is self-taught in wine knowledge & sales, and I believe that is what makes her so good at her job. Wine sommeliers and buyers tell me she’s kind, approachable, and funny.

Laura is a wife (38 years & still best friends!) and mother of 2 amazing adults, but her favorite role is grandmother to sweet Bodhi.

Cheers to you, Laura, for your unwavering support with all my crazy life & business paths, our entertaining mentoring sessions @Jeffrys, and most importantly, your unconditional love for your family and friends.
