Great family run company that cared about their workers
Executive Assistant to Chairman (Former Employee) – White Plains, NY – May 16, 2014
I learned a lot about the alcohol industry, you think a label on a wine bottle is simple and it turns out to be very complicated. The whole process of design is just the beginning. Going through legal specifications are pretty detailed, it takes a long time to get a label approved for a bottle of wine. I learned that there are states that the state controls the sale of alcohol and being taught how to taste wine was a very interesting lesson. I had some amazing co-workers that become serious friends and wonderful bosses that I truly miss. Having a "tasting" in the middle of the afternoon on a work day to decide which wines we would add to our portfolio sure made it fun. Don't think your drinking alcohol during the day, you don't actually swallow. This is a fun company to work for, the only reason I left was my family relocated to another state, otherwise I would still be there.
Employee discount on wine, company match on 401K, Chairman walked around and knew every employee, good bonus plan, family run company
Turnover in some departments, favoritism
