The wine festival is pleased to announce Suzanne Groth, CEO and President of Groth Vineyards & Winery in Oakville, California, as its 2020 honorary chair.

Suzanne grew up in Oakville, Napa Valley and after a stint working in the field of art after college, she began her wine career in distribution sales, selling fine wine to restaurants and retailers. She returned to the family business in 1998, where she eventually acquired an increased level of ownership, and now oversees the Groth family wine business on behalf of the second generation. Suzanne is also actively involved in several wine industry-related organizations including the Wine Institute and the Oakville Winegrowers Association.

“I am thrilled to be the Cincinnati International Wine Festival’s honorary chair for 2020. Wine, like family, brings us all to the table to gather, share and reflect.  I look forward to being a part of this esteemed festival’s 30th anniversary celebration with the wines from my family’s vineyards, cellar and table.” -Suzanne Groth
