Human Resources expert Cheryl King joins Frank Family Vineyards, following her son’s wine industry lead
Frank Family Vineyards is pleased to welcome human resources expert Cheryl King as Human Resources Manager. Cheryl, who held top HR roles in the hospitality industry at such places as Hilton Sonoma Wine Country, Intercontinental Mark Hopkins and Scarlet Huntington Hotel, says her transition to the wine industry was the influence of her son, Nicholas King, who is currently Marketing Manager of PlumpJack Estate Winery, CADE Estate Winery and Odette Estate Winery.
“I became immersed in wine as a frequent visitor of both Napa and Sonoma since 1999, when I made my first visit to Frank Family Vineyards. As my son Nick’s career within prominent wineries grew, so did my wine appreciation and desire to also work in the wine industry. You never expect your kids to be your professional influences. I feel very fortunate to be able to transition and work at one of the Napa Valley’s busiest and most beloved wineries,” she says.
Santa Rosa is home for Cheryl King, and she takes joy in her short and beautiful commute to Calistoga, along the winding roads over the Mayacamas Mountains. She brings over 20 years of human resources experience to Frank Family Vineyards.
