Georgetta Dane’s path to becoming the Lead Winemaker for the Chloe Wine Collection began halfway around the world.
Born and raised in Romania, Georgetta earned a Master’s Degree in Food Science at Galati University. In 1998, her husband applied for a U.S. visa on a whim, and eight months later – on the day of their daughter’s baptism – the family received green cards. Despite having careers, a family and a home under construction, Georgetta and her husband risked it all and immigrated to the U.S. in hopes of living the American Dream.
In Monterey, California, Georgetta’s first job in the wine industry was in 1999 with Jackson Family Wines as a lab technician. As her English improved she demonstrated her enological knowledge and quickly advanced. In 2004, she joined The Wine Group and three years later took the helm of her own brand.
Today, Georgetta is the Lead Winemaker for the Chloe Wine Collection, where she marries her old world European roots with a contemporary American lifestyle to craft wines fit for sophisticated and modern wine lovers. Based on California’s Central Coast, Georgetta sources grapes from prized vineyards in California’s Sonoma County and North Coast in addition to Northern Italy’s Valdadige D.O.C. region, to create exceptional wine everyone can enjoy.
Placing quality and taste at the forefront, the Chloe Wine Collection is the first portfolio of its kind to embody exceptional wine, memorable occasions, and graceful elegance both inside and outside the distinctively classic black and white label.
“There’s something truly wonderful about a good wine’s ability to elevate an ordinary moment and create a memorable occasion. We designed the Chloe Wine Collection to mark life’s special moments – big or small. Crafted for wine enthusiasts who appreciate all things extraordinary and timeless, these wines are an affordable luxury that promise an elegant and quality experience sip after sip.”
