Clarice Turner Named to 2018 Wine Industry Leader List
From Business Monthly October 2018 issue: "A leader is someone who makes an impact or shapes how people act or how things occur—an agent of change. Making and selling wine is a multi-faceted endeavor led by those brave enough (or crazy enough) to pave a new way forward, inspiring generations to come. There are different ways to be a leader. Some of the leaders on this list have discovered new ways of doing things: new ways of marketing, tapping into trends and building brands. Some were entrepreneurial. Others developed a specific expertise; found niches or rallied behind causes they believed in. All of them are leaders in the North American wine business. When Wine Business Monthly created this list, we wanted to acknowledge the multitude of leaders shaping the industry today."
