Director of Sales & MarketingJim Sweeney
Jim and his family moved to the Wine Country in 2000. He brings extensive experience helping to sell and market some of the most successful brands in the wine business. Jim has helped create unique and compelling winery experiences, craft vintners’ stories, and building/leading national sales teams and Winery staff to share those stories. He has been the sales manager for several beverage alcohol industry leaders including Constellation, Huneeus Vintners, Vintage Wine Estates and the 'The Quixote Collection'.
With this extensive experience, Jim knows that nothing really compares to dynamically and passionately sharing and showing the personal stories of vintners, world class winemakers, gorgeous wineries and well-manicured vineyards, chefs, artisanal craft producers, and share the overall lifestyle and beauty in each wine growing region. When Arron approached Jim on the concept and creation of The Wine Country Channel, it was immediately clear that this new broadcast channel is the only way to ‘experience’ the Wine Country, the appellations, the vintners, the vineyards, wine makers, chefs, local special experiences, and special events prior to arrival. More than print, more than trying to communicate your stories solely through wholesale, The Wine Country Channel is the only streaming TV that can transport you to the entire ‘Wine Country Experience’.
