Castle Rock Vineyards expands sales staff


Shearer comes to Castle Rock Vineyards from Sunriver Sales, Visalia, Calif. Before entering the fresh produce industry, he was an investment advisor for eight years.

“Steve’s produce sales experience and his financial expertise are attributes that make him a perfect fit for our sales team,” said Jim Llano, Castle Rock sales manager.

Castle Rock, which has vineyards in both the Coachella and San Joaquin valleys, is projecting an increase in table grape volume this season.

“We could be up as much as 20%,” Llano said.

Laurie Rinard and Jason Fuller are also members of the Castle Rock Vineyards sales staff.
