Briana is originally from Minnesota but has been in Montana since 2001. She spent eleven years in apparel and textiles importing before joining the family business at Winegardner’s Wines in 2012. The opportunity to become part of the wine world was an exciting new venture, and she’s found that her experiences from the importing world are similar to the ever-changing dynamics in the wine business, so it was a natural transition. As someone who loves to learn (and with wine there is always something to learn), her passion for wine and its nuances is ever growing. She is honored to be a part of continuing the business that Kurt & Melinda founded over twenty-five years ago.
Briana has a preference for Old World wines, and loves drinking rosé all year long. And, of course, she always enjoys a glass of something bubbly.
Outside of work, she loves spending time with her family. She also loves movies, traveling, yoga, hiking, golfing, cooking, reading & music.
