Beverly Olson

California Sales Manager

Beverly is a fourth-generation Sonoma County native whose family enjoys aviation, the arts, and agriculture. A talented pianist, she studied piano with Dr. Paul Mihaly in the San Francisco Bay Area, and became a recording artist and piano teacher in her own right. Beverly has also served as a Conductor’s Assistant to Jeffrey Kahane of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and the Santa Rosa Symphony. Beverly’s uncle Scott Stoner, an award-winning winemaker for Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates, played an important role in her interest in wine. She won a position as a Sales Representative for Frank-Lin Distillers Products, Ltd., a multi-state wine and spirits importer and distributor, and quickly became a top salesperson during her five years with the company. As California Sales Manager, Beverly has made great strides in making sure Hook & Ladder wines are available in the state’s premier restaurants and upscale retail shops. She enjoys creating interesting food and wine pairings, and her passion for “wine, food, art, and people” continues to be the driving force in her efforts.
