Matthew Bartlett, MBA Class of 2013

The main reason I got involved with Sonoma State Cellars was to help set the foundation for what will hopefully be a long term venture for SSU. I’ve really enjoyed working with fellow students of varying backgrounds on one common goal; to make Sonoma State Cellars widely known and respected in the community.

Kim Finnie, MBA Class of 2013

Sonoma State Cellars is a natural fit for SSU and the Wine Business Institute. This program unites current MBA students with alumni and other influential industry leaders in the community. My involvement with Sonoma State Cellars has provided incredible networking opportunities as well as the honor to participate in the development of this program.

Michael Sipiora, MBA Class of 2013

Sonoma State Cellars is constantly evolving. Every year students, like myself, contribute in different ways to making this project an exciting and fun way of supporting the Wine Business Program at Sonoma State.

Sergei Troxel, MBA Class of 2013

Sonoma State Cellars is an excellent program that gives us students the opportunity to gain hands on experience in brand building. This year the inaugural release is extended with a distinctive new product that will certainly be a success. Future students can look forward to an ever amassing evolution that could eventually be limitless.
