My name is Michelle Allen, and I am the new wine club manager at Novelty Hill-Januik. Many of you may have already met me in the tasting room or at a release party, two of my favorites parts of the job. You may have also seen my husband Albert helping my children chow down on Chef Seth’s Wine’d Down Wednesday menu.

I have been with Novelty Hill-Januik for four years, most recently assisting Andrea Slichter, our national director of sales. Working with Andrea provided me with an incredible opportunity to showcase our wonderful wines around the country, but the chance to work with our Cellar Circle members both close to home and in other parts of the U.S. was too good to pass up, so here I am!

I follow Laura Emil in this position who left the winery this summer to join our e-commerce provider. She sends her best to each and every one of you.

It is an honor to be your Cellar Circle manager. I take great pride in cultivating and nurturing relationships with all you. Please feel free to say hello or ask for me next time you visit the winery. I can also be reached by phone (425-481-5502) or email at michelle@noveltyhilljanuik.com.
