You may have seen Jayna Viereck in Ponte’s tasting room if you have ever visited the winery; she has been part of the Ponte team for 7 years. What began as a merchandising assistant job has blossomed into a career as Assistant Tasting Room Manager. Part of her job takes Jayna to gift and food shows to stay in the loop of what is happening in the merchandising world. It also makes her an expert blogger, as she shares the latest trends and tips with our readers. Even before Ponte, Jayna was no stranger to customer service and merchandising. She previously worked at Macy’s in the home store where she specialized in china and crystal ordering and helped brides create their dream registry from scratch. All of this, plus her interest in anything artistic – oil painting, learning piano—gives Jayna a superior eye on décor and taste.
