Bettina Doulton, Owner/Operator of Cellerdoor Winery
12:30 - 1:30 p.m. 在Richard E. 戴克家族企业中心
When Bettina first visited Cellardoor in December 2006, she immediately fell in love with the 200-year-old buildings and 68-acre farm. 知道酒庄要卖了, she realized her longtime dream to run a small business when she became its owner in 2007. Leaving behind a 21-year career at Fidelity Investments managing mutual funds and people, and feeling more reflective after having finished breast-cancer treatment in 2006, Bettina fully embraced that new chapter in her life. 在任何一天, you may find her greeting guests in the tasting rooms, 驾驶拖拉机或叉车, 或者在收获的时候把葡萄砸下来.
Bettina is dedicated to sharing Cellardoor Winery, 缅因州的葡萄酒, and all the beauty of Maine with as many visitors as possible. To that end, she founded the Maine Wine Guild and its statewide Wine Trail.
Bettina has found complete joy in the people she works with and the guests who visit. She wants everyone to have a highlight each day and hopes a visit to the Winery will give guests a break from the rat race she remembers all too well.注册在这里
