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.
