Eastern Sales Director
Sara Manucy grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina and was raised on the outstanding cooking from her mother’s and grandma’s kitchen. After attending Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina, Sara studied abroad in Italy and England and found she could use her knowledge and love of food by working in the fine dining field. It was there she learned to love wine as well, and decided to create a career based around both.
After returning to North Carolina, Sara spent several years coordinating wine programs for restaurants, working with distributor giants Empire Distributing and Paterno Imports, and finally with Moët Hennessy developing their on-premise and high-end account visibility. In 2008, Sara accepted a position with Sokol Blosser Winery as their Brand Ambassador and is responsible for promoting the Sokol Blosser brands in over twenty five states and three international markets.
Sara and her husband, Matt, and four children live in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
