Jeanne Cabral — Director of Sales & Marketing

Jeanne Cabral has been a dynamic member of Heitz Wine Cellars' team for 24 years.

She grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, and established her lifelong appreciation of fine wine during frequent visits with her extended family who has resided in the Napa Valley since the 1920s. Jeanne relocated to Yountville in 1981, bringing an impressive resumé of managerial accomplishment in the insurance industry.

Deciding to redirect her skills towards a career in the wine industry, Jeanne initially came to work at Heitz Wine Cellars to learn the basics. She then took an educational sabbatical at Sacramento State University, graduating with an honors degree in business administration, before returning to pursue her career.

As our Director of Sales & Marketing, Jeanne has helped us to build strong relationships with distributors and retailers nationally and internationally. She believes, "Heitz Cellars has a wonderful story to tell," and because she has been part of that story for 24 years, Jeanne has an exceptional depth of knowledge and enthusiasm about our brand that makes a positive impact everywhere she goes.

One of Jeanne's personal passions is running. As a frequent traveler, she thinks it's the best way to get acquainted with new places. When she's at home with her husband Ernie, camping and canoeing top their list of favorite things to do.

Daniel Vu — National Sales Manager

Daniel was originally headed for a career in classical music in his native Southern California. While continuing his education in France, he was drawn to the culture of food and wine and decided to change direction. Within a few years, he completed an MBA in the marketing and management of wine and spirits at INSEEC in Bordeaux and began working at VINEXPO, a wine industry exhibition company.

During a vacation to Napa Valley, Daniel realized he wanted to stay, so when Moet-Hennessey offered him the position of export manager, he was happy to relocate. Subsequently, he also had the opportunity to gain experience with Riedel Crystal, Inc.

We welcomed Daniel as our National Sales Manager in the spring of 2011. Since arriving, he has helped to develop our business and customer relationships, including the expansion of our duty free and cruise line business.

Not surprisingly, when Daniel wants to unwind, he makes time for classical music and cooking.
