Venita Simcox

As Marketing Manager for Craggy Range and with WSET and Court of Master Somms credentials under her belt, Venita has come a long way from the keenly honed Bernadino palette she established back in Taranaki. All it took was a few hard years spent alternating summers between St Barths and the Med on a superyacht (and a very generous boss) for her to discover there was something pretty special about the wines she was serving each night. Thankfully for us, Vee chose Hawke’s Bay wine country over ‘Below Deck’ and hasn’t looked back since. With a background in graphic design, a knack for problem-solving and a love for all things grammar, Vee’s marketing skills will give ChatGPT a run for its money.
