In August, Bri Eldridge celebrated her fourth year at MacRostie as a Wine Ambassador. If you’ve had the pleasure to meet Bri, or have had her host you during a visit, then you know that Bri’s warmth and joyful positivity is absolutely infectious. While Bri loves teaching people about our wines, as a wine country native who grew up in the Russian River Valley her goal is for guests to remember the entire experience, and not just the wines. “It’s a wonderful feeling to help people create a deeper connection to this beautiful place.”
When asked what inspires her, Bri’s response is simple, “I like to find happiness by focusing on others. I want them to feel welcomed with open arms. When you see a guest with a huge smile, you know that you’ve helped create more than a moment—you’ve created a memory. That attitude starts from the top. After the 2017 fires we had a big staff meeting.
“I expected it to be about finances and hitting sales goals, but it wasn’t. It was a meeting to let us know that MacRostie’s priority was keeping us safe—both mentally and physically. They treated us like family and it touched my heart. It shaped how I approach my role as an ambassador and made me proud to be a part of a company that really cares.”
