Sierra’s Napa Valley roots date back four generations, and her family is well-known here.
Sierra Antognini leads TOR Wines Operations and is typically your first point of contact when reaching out to us. She manages everything from release allocations to wine fulfillment, and all operations in between.
Sierra has been with TOR Wines for four years now and feels more like a member of the family. Given that family roots in the Napa Valley is such a large part of her passion for the wine industry, it was easy to fit right in with this small family-owned winery. Sierra’s Napa Valley roots date back four generations beginning with her great-grandfather, Salvatore Emmolo establishing a grapevine rootstock nursery in St Helena in 1923. Her grandfather, Frank Emmolo continued to manage the nursery well into the late 1900’s. This very nursery later became one of the leading suppliers to Napa Valley vintners for years. Her family continues to farm grapes on that very property and remain heavily involved in the wine industry today.
Sierra came to TOR Wines from BRAND Napa Valley, located on Pritchard Hill, where she managed Consumer Relations for three years. Working alongside such a small team allowed her to learn many aspects of winery operations, leading her to eventually join the TOR team as the Director of Operations.
When Sierra isn’t managing the daily operations at TOR Wines, she is busy managing the daily operations of two young boys at home. Along with her husband, Trevor, Sierra loves that she can share her hometown and wine industry roots with her boys. Being able to raise a family in this special place is a dream come true.
