Ashley Applegate
Sales Representative – Springfield

That’s Ashley, sipping Falanghina, in a vineyard in Italy. It’s one of her favorites.  5 minutes into a conversation with her, and you will see she has some serious wanderlust for traveling abroad.  Europe twice in one year? Yes Please.

Ashley really found her groove when she left the corporate world behind.  9-5 behind a desk?  I don’t think so.  From Retail Sales Manager of a brewery, to drink slinger behind the bar, to captain of the Wine Club- she has been immersed in this industry for several years and couldn’t be happier. Ashley’s affection for good wine, and the knowledge that goes along with it, started to cultivate when she met the owner of a local wine bar a few years back.  A Thanksgiving wine pairing dinner forever changed her, and she’s been trying to learn all she can about the vast world of wine and developing some pretty amazing wine pairing menus of her own.

When she is not slinging wine, you will find Ashley kayaking, hiking, or camping somewhere purposely without cell phone signal and the open sky.
