Meet the Team - Alejandro "Alex" Gomez!

   A new year is always exciting—a fresh start, an opportunity to try new things, or a chance to become reacquainted

with yourself, your friends, or your favorite Priest Ranch team members! To start our Meet the Team series, we’rekicking it off with one of our longest-tenured hospitality and sales team members, our Direct to Consumer Sales Manager, Alejandro “Alex” Gomez! He’s the leader of our hospitality and sales team and has grown immensely through his time with Priest Ranch, from hosting in the tasting room to running logistics and fulfillment—Alex is a tremendous asset to our team. Let’s learn a little bit more about him!

How long have you been with Priest Ranch?
 
Almost 6 years
What is your favorite Priest Ranch wine?
The 2016 Snake Oil (this vintage may be sold out, but you can order our current release Snake Oil today! Use promo code “ALEX” for 10% off!)
What is your favorite Priest Ranch memory?
When we had our 2021 Harvest Party at the Estate, it was nice to come together as a company and celebrate a successful year after 2020, an incredibly challenging year between the pandemic and fires at the property. Our collective team deserved a pat on the back after all we had been through individually; as a hospitality team and a great Estate, it truly bonded us. 
What is your favorite Priest Ranch experience to host?
Bacon & Wine Experience because of bacon and wine. Also, with the addition of our Executive Chef, we’ve been able to level it up and give our guests and clients an even better experience.
What is your favorite non-Priest Ranch experience?
Date nights at Rutherford Grill.
What is your favorite activity to do during your time off?
Vineyard walks with my wife, Itzel, and our Aussie Collie, Nala.
What do you like most about Priest Ranch?
Being part of the awesome team we have built over the years and how much everyone truly enjoys each other's company. I watched the team evolve over the years I’ve spent learning and growing here. And as an added bonus, I am able to bring Nala to weekend and evening events. Since our tasting room is pet-friendly, we’re participating in Napa Humane’s Pawsport Month; I appreciate that we support our community, especially our furry friends. And it is a great way for Itzel and me to discover other wineries to which we could bring Nala. Oh, and I am notorious for getting lunch from The Kitchen
almost daily… I can’t help that Chef’s menu is so good.
Freestyle! What do you want to share about yourself/your family?
Okay, let’s do it!
 
  • Born and raised in St. Helena
  • I have been in the wine industry for over 12 years
  • My wife and I love enjoying food and wine at restaurants throughout the Napa Valley
  • Traveling whenever possible
  • Stay active by walking Nala, going to the gym, and playing tennis
  • Go Warriors & Niners!

   As you get to know the rest of our team better, you will understand that we are a crew of animal lovers. For the 2023 holiday season, we supported Jameson Humane, and this spring, we will be paw-ticipating in Napa

Humane’s Pawsport Month (use code “PRIESTRANCH24” for $10 off!) as one of the many animal-friendly tasting rooms inthe Napa Valley. Don’t forget to use #PawsofPriestRanch when posting a picture of your furry friend while you enjoy our Yountville tasting room or from the comfort of your home.

   We hope you’ve enjoyed learning a little bit more about Alex and some of the exciting things happening for our team and our guests. Plus, now you know who “Alex from Priest Ranch” is when our emails hit your inbox. Stay tuned to meet more of our team and for all of the latest Priest Ranch activities and updates!

    From Alex and the team at Priest Ranch, cheers!
