About Us
Ali Bonfantine, Sales and Marketing Facebook

Ali Bonfantine, Sales and Marketing Manager, joined our team at the beginning of 2015. She has a very diverse professional background. She started her career out of college managing a high volume restaurant for 7 years. Eventually she decided to leave the restaurant industry and for the next 7 years, worked in Retail Store Operations at the corporate level for a few major retailers. From there, she was given an opportunity to join the Strategic Sourcing team at the Gap Inc. Headquarters in San Francisco, doing cost savings analysis for the company.

After 15 years in Corporate America, Ali felt this calling to come back to the service industry and wanted to pursue her two passions, food and wine.

In 2008, Ali and her boyfriend, Bruce, met Wendy at the Columbia Wine Tasting Event, and instantly fell in love with Prospect 772 wines. They would frequent the winery everytime they would come into town from the Bay Area, and soon became good friends with Ron and Wendy.

In 2014, Ali felt it was time to leave The Gap, and relocated up to Gold Country to pursue a career that would embrace her true passions. While going to school to earn her Chef Certification, she joined our team to help us promote and sell our wines. With her unique background of food, retail, and financial business knowledge, Ali has been able to help us build our membership and marketing strategy, revamp our website and plan our events calendar.

Now Ali is a certified chef, and also caters for Lila and Sage Catering in Murphys, while managing our Sales and Marketing for Prospect 772. If you ever wanted to schedule a private chef dinner at Prospect 772, you can arrange this with Ron and Ali.

While she doesn't work the tasting room as often as she use to, you will occasionally run into her there covering for Ron, when she has a weekend free from catering. And when she is at the tasting room, you will most likely be greeted first by her English Bull Terrier, Betty.
