Erin Martin
National Sales Manager

I started out as a waitress in New York City after college, where I fell in love with all that the wine industry has to offer.  I took classes with the American Sommelier Association in New York, then went on to work in a bottle shop and for a wine distributor in Virginia before moving out to California and working for Laird Family Estate.

When not slinging grapes, I like to read, cook, hike, go to Giants games, and generally make merriment with friends. My favorite Laird wine is the Ghost Ranch Pinot Noir.

Justin Ward
Northern California Sales Manager

What started as a passion for Italian wine, turned into managing a wine shop after college in Richmond, VA.  I decided to forget my law school plans and drive cross country to Napa Valley where I was lucky to be hired at Laird Family Estate.

In my free time Justin enjoys golf, basketball, fly fishing and watching the Giants and Jeopardy. My Favorite Laird Wine is the Suscol Syrah.
