Van Nice has more than 20 years of experience and will be responsible for all business operations while working closely with owners and founders Laurent Montalieu and Danielle Andrus Montalieu. Prior to joining Soléna Estate, Van Nice was the former president of Panther Creek Cellars and Four Graces wineries.
