Debbie Daniels – Director of Operations

Deborah comes to D. R. Stephens Estate with experience in all facets of the wine business. With over fifteen years of know-how, Deborah has focused on the ultra-premium wine market, working with the finest wines from Napa, Sonoma and France.

Having moved to St. Helena from the Bay Area at an early age, Deborah had a magical childhood in the Napa Valley, spending much of her free time roaming through the vineyards, hills and fields.

Deborah’s love of the valley drew her back to St. Helena after she earned her B. A. in Psychology from U. C. Berkeley. She worked for a psychology clinic in Napa, married her husband of a third-generation Napa Valley family, and then chose to be a full-time Mom to raise her two children.

Deborah started her career in the wine industry after her children started school.  With over 20 years of know-how, Deborah has focused on the ultra-premium wine market, working with the finest wines from Napa, Sonoma and France.  Given her love of the essence of life and nature, she thoroughly enjoys handling the operations of the winery, marketing and promoting wine and the Napa Valley.
