Merle has been at the store the longest, starting here, then know as the Beer Factory, in June of 1997. Quite frankly Merle is the “quarterback” of operations. Most of her day is spent in the front of the store making sure all our customers are pampered the way they should be. While doing this, she  juggles sales, answers phone calls, makes phone calls, cleans, and ensures the production staff are kept busy. Merle’s “bubbly” personality keeps De Vine Vintners a fun place to visit and work at.

Janice Mace

Janice started with us in February 2018, and started with a bang. She has caught onto the processes very quickly and has been learning ever sense. She essentially does about 70% of the activities in the fermentation room while helping out with customers in a pinch. She is truly becoming a wine expert.
