About Emily Pickral: Emily’s career in wine began just out of college, when a burgeoning interest in wine landed her a job as a server at Gramercy Tavern in New York City. For the past 12 years, she has worked in various capacities in the wine business: first as a sales person for wine importer, Kysela Pere et Fils and later moving to Northern California to be in “the heart” of wine production. She spent two years with Chappellet Winery in Napa before coming on board with Jackson Family Wines as a national educator.  Currently, she works for Jackson Family’s distribution company in California, Regal Wines, as Director of Sales for the key accounts division. Her passion for learning about wine encouraged her to embark upon the Master Sommelier diploma-- in 2009, she enrolled in the Court of Master Sommelier introductory course, going on to earn the Master Sommelier diploma in 2013. Emily was the 19th woman in the world to earn the title, and is one of 230 Master Sommelier’s worldwide. DSC01417_arrowood_emily
