John Blazon to head the Spire Collection

John Blazon, one of three Master Sommeliers in greater Orlando, will be assuming the position of Vice President of Sales for the Spire Collection.

In what may be a new trend in high end wine sales, all of the regional sales representatives will be credentialed sommeliers. According to Jackson Family Wine officials, the sales team will be uniquely qualified to assist fine dining restaurants and upscale retail shops that do not have an in-house sommelier, and can work synergistically with those that do.

Blazon has over 25 years of experience in the wine business, most recently as the wine and beverage manager at Walt Disney World, where he supervised the wine program in over 50 restaurants.

The Spire Collection, the upper echelon of Jess Jackson’ Jackson Family Wines, includes such brands as Hartford Court, LaJota, Lokoya, Arrowood, Cardinale, and Verite.
