Cellarmaster, Sterling Vineyards

Ann is one of the most disciplined and punctual people I’ve ever known. Her ability to work efficiently under stressful conditions and with data and information coming in from many departments speaks volumes about her hard work, determination and ability to multi task & organize. During her time at Caymus Vineyards she excelled at being a project leader and has demonstrated excellent leadership skills and team spirit while working with department heads and employees. I highly recommend her. She has a deep understanding of winemaking, wine and inventory tracking, and management at many levels.

Ann is extremely knowledgeable, professional and a fantastic solution finder. She always has a positive way to execute goals. She has also been a great source of information for us and a valued consultant when having to navigate the waters on a county, state and federal level while juggling multiple permits in multiple locations. We haven’t thrown a scenario at Ann that she hasn’t been able to figure out for us.

Ann makes compliance easy, has great relationships and is extremely knowledgable so that any of your compliance is done right the first time! She is a one stop shop for everything compliance including 702’s, label compliance, grape crush report and permit applications. She is not only great to work with in person, but also very responsive and timely whether it be e-mail or phone.

Michael Abernathy

Assistant Winemaker, John Anthony Vineyards

Extremely pleased we found Ann who handles compliance for our 3 winery locations (2 in CA and 1 in NY). Ann is detail oriented, smart and knows her away around the regulatory channels to get us compliant and buttoned up. If you’re looking for a compliance pro – look no further.

Rick Libby

Chief Grapestomper, Traveling Vineyard

Ann is a wealth of knowledge, and she’s always working hard to make sure that she and her clients are updated on the latest compliance regulations. With a background in wine production, she can easily relate to her clients’ most specific questions and needs. Ann is very responsive and her communication and explanations are easy to understand for even the most novice of us. Fortunately, she is also very friendly and extra-patient if some of the information takes longer to sink in. I couldn’t ask for a more relatable, informative ally in my compliance work.

Dianne Norton

General Manager, The Caves at Soda Canyon

Ann is great, she really knows her stuff. I took her class when she was teaching at the college and she’s very knowledgeable. Our winery has also used her for various compliance tasks like COLAS and Permit updates. She is quick and efficient. Highly recommend.

Greg Siewert

Assistant Winemaker, Napa Valley College Winery

Ann is the first person that I think of when recommending compliance help for my clients. She is very knowledgeable on the subject and explains everything in a way that even a person with no wine compliance knowledge can understand. She is also great at responding to any and all questions I might have and does so in a timely manner. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would!

Susie Dineen

Microcrush Manager, Judd's Hill Winery

Having Ann guide us through the compliance process was essential in correctly submitting all our applications. We had our fair share of questions and Ann was always readily available with the spot on answers! As a new business, working with Ann was a great investment and we look forward to continuing to work along side her with our compliance matters. Thanks Ann!

Ann is a wonderful authority on the world of compliance. She was helpful and friendly every step of the way while being very professional and knowledgable.

Ann was the “unicorn” we had been searching for! Finally someone that could handle filing reports for us that was smart and savvy and fair with pricing. We needed help as small family winery’s get things done. No more worries for us now that we use Ann, we are compliant. 5 Star Service!

Ann is always so helpful anytime I reach out to her for questions, recently I have reached out to her numerous times regarding all the federal excise tax changes and she is always willing to help. She always has the right answers.

Claudia Alcantar

I could not be more satisfied with the level of service and professionalism from Ann at Wine Compliance Alliance. Her thoroughness and knowledge of the regulatory requirements is extremely impressive. There is no way that we would have been able to navigate those waters without her direction. Her “do it yourself” package included easy to follow videos that detail every step of the process. Ann’s service is an incredible value.
