Thomas Bardessono has joined the Global Package sales team June 15, 2016

We are thrilled to announce that Thomas Bardessono has joined the Global Package sales team, heading up sales in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington. Tom comes to us with decades of experience in all facets of wine production, from vineyard management and winemaking to wine and wine barrel sales to business analyst, strategic planning and logistics. He was introduced to Global Package when he purchased the Fiona bottle for his Bardessono Vineyards and Wines winery in Yountville, CA.

“From my past experience and as owner and winemaker of Bardessono, I was very aware of the critical role the bottle plays in packaging,” Tom says. “Not only is it a key element of a brand’s persona, it also must perform flawlessly on the bottling line, hold up under sometimes extreme shipping conditions, look great on the shelf, and yet not break the bank in cost. When I contacted Global Package for advice on a bottle for my wine, I was very impressed with their inventory and their knowledgeable customer service. I was excited to learn they were looking for help with sales, so I jumped at the chance. It seems like a perfect match!”

Tom worked for almost 10 years with Miner Family Winery in Oakville, CA, where he increased new client revenue, from $50k to $250k. He also performed and updated production protocols, quality controls, and managed the winery’s safety program from harvest crush to bottling. Prior to Miner, he worked for Bouchard Cooperage, Greenfield Wine Company, Jack Neal Vineyard Management, and Kendall-Jackson and Robert Mondavi wineries.

Global Package founder and CEO, Erica Harrop, adds: “Tom comes with amazing credentials and will be a real asset to our team! He soon will be reaching out to all our contacts in the Northwest region, so I hope you will extend him a warm welcome.”
