Meet Our Team - Stephanie
My name is Stephanie Wolden. As a native Californian, I grew up along the coastlines of Southern California and received my B.A. from Cal State Long Beach. After a decade of working in cubicles, I became restless and was feeling the pull of adventure. So, I sold my belongings and headed off to Florence, Italy where I taught English as a foreign language and sold Florentine leather in a boutique shop. It was here that I had my “ah-ha moment” with wine. A 1998 Brunello di Montalcino literally changed the course of my life. As my palette and passion for wine developed, I set my sights on Napa for the move back to California. An exciting new career began at Domaine Chandon in 2006 where I worked as an Ambassador of Wine for both Chandon and Newton Vineyard, while gaining a solid foundation in wine education, hospitality and management. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of spending my days at various premier wineries throughout the valley; all of which have led me here, to the tasting room of Cornerstone Cellars. My “spare” time is spent as a travel writer and photographer.
