Alyssa Vera, Direct Sales and Hospitality Associate, is a born and bred West Coast native. After graduating with a degree in Business, Economics, and Sociology from the University of Oregon, Alyssa spent eight months in Margaret River (Western Australia), where she got her first taste of working in the wine industry. During her time in the Land Down Under, Alyssa discovered a passion for wine through the lens of community, culture, and nature, and above all, how these three facets come together to teach about the past, present, and possibilities for the future. Alyssa feels that each vintage brings a new set of challenges, as well as potential opportunities for growth and reflection. At Evening Land, she's found the utmost fulfillment in building relationships with guests over a glass of wine. When not hosting guests at the winery, Alyssa enjoys doing puzzles and hanging at home with her pets.
