Benovia Winery is pleased to announce that winery co-founder and owner, Mary Dewane, has been appointed general manager. Dewane co-founded the small production, family-owned winery in the heart of Russian River Valley with her husband, Joe Anderson, in 2005. Benovia’s allocation list has grown remarkably, necessitating the need for increased management and administration. Dewane was chosen by Benovia’s board of directors because of her experience as a CEO earlier in her career, her background in farming and her role as a hands-on owner.
