Welcome to Community Connections! This week I would like to introduce you to Marion Dauner, General Manager of Vinocopia. Vinocopia is a wholesale distributor of wines and spirits, specializing in smaller brands – craft distilled spirits and family-owned wineries. Vinocopia’s parent company owns two Piattelli wineries in Argentina – one in Mendoza and the second in Salta. Vinocopia has grown since its beginning in 2006, to a sales force of 15, serving the entire State of Minnesota. They are known as the “go to” company for specialty wines and spirits.
Marion has been with the company for 11 years and during that time, Vinocopia has been honored as Small Business of the Year, due to her great leadership. With the social nature of the beverage alcohol industry, she is lucky to call dining in nice restaurants and conducting wine & spirit tastings work! I think I would like to spend a day at the office with her! Vinocopia is hosting our next Member Happy Hour. Make sure you stop by to say hello and enjoy some specialty wines.
