Tony Porras

It will be 2 years in October, that I have been the Director of Wine, Beer & Spirits for Bristol Farms, Lazy Acres and New Leaf Market for CA. Before coming on as Director, I was with E & J Gallo for 24 years. I was recruited to Gallo and started on the Chain Division as a Sales Rep. and I was promoted to District Mgr. and then to Area Mgr. I was then promoted to the Off Premise / Broad Market Division, where I opened numerous premium markets and I managed the So. Cal. Fine Wine Division. Through the years with Gallo, I managed several So. Cal. and California Divisions in the premium wine sector.

In 2021, Gallo merged their Sales Division with RNDC and I was an Account Executive where I managed Total Wine, Whole Foods and Sprouts Markets as National Accounts and Bristol Farms and Gelson’s as Regional Accounts.
