French Vintages, from Vintage 59
Debra Lewis, Regional Sales Manager
Vintage ’59 Imports
Debra came to work for Vintage ’59 Imports with a varied past. She has sailed around the world, lived and worked in France, ran a city-wide art program in Los Angeles, and worked both front and back of the house in restaurants. It was in restaurants in North Carolina where her wine education began as a buyer.
She moved to distribution as a salesperson, and then became a sales manager before going on to run a nationwide brokerage of small French producers. She built lasting relationships with these growers, and brought a number of them with her to V59. From Debra’s perspective, V59 continues this thread of having a deep history and personal relationships with each of the domains it represents.
Debra is part of the national sales team in the Southeast, the Mid-Atlantic, and the Midwest, where she finds pleasure each day working with the family of Vintage 59 growers and sharing their wines with consumers.
