Guest Relations Coordinator
Born in Southern Illinois and raised in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Beth Bowlin grew up with a splash of wine at the dinner table, later advancing deeper into the rabbit hole while serving and bartending in fine dining establishments: Wine Spectator and Food & Wine - recognized Celebrations Restaurant and then Saffron Bistro, while in college.
After graduating from Southern Illinois University Carbondale with a bachelors’ degree in Fashion Design & Merchandising, Beth accepted freelance design projects while working as a pattern maker for Hart, Schaffner & Marx in Cape Girardeau until it shuttered in 2008. It was soon thereafter that the opportunity to professionally revisit the wine industry manifested, as opening staff of PrimoVino: a Napa-focused wine bar and retail space boasting 500+ labels and lily pad that would eventually propel her leap from Cape Girardeau to Napa. She interviewed in June 2012 and arrived in the valley a month to the day later, on the 4th of July.
Beth has come full circle after starting her Napa career at Silver Trident Winery’s Yountville neighbor, Somerston Wine Company in 2012, followed by Laird Family Estate, Gamble Family Vineyards, and then wholesale representation for a trio domestic and international portfolios throughout The Bay Area before landing at Silver Trident Winery. A former competitive martial artist and dance minor, Beth is also a seasoned Yoga instructor with emphasis on Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin disciplines. She joined the Silver Trident Team in April of 2016 as Guest Relations Coordinator and has since added an Art Curatorship role. She calls Yountville her personal and professional home and is currently pursuing Certified Sommelier certification through The Court of Master Sommeliers. Beth loves to travel and can most often be found eating and drinking her way through the valley, grooving at rock shows and cruising though Yountville in her vintage golf cart.
