European Trip Introduced New Direct Shipping Manager to the World of Wine
A high school graduation trip to Italy wasn’t just fun for Alex Frey.
It altered his life, introducing him to the world of wine. As a college student at William & Mary, he was excited to discover the Williamsburg Winery and worked weekends in Susan Constant Hall as a tasting room associate. After graduating last May, he interned during harvest.
Today he is the Winery’s new Direct Shipping Manager.
It’s not a career he foresaw as a double major in government and film, but he feels fortunate to continue his wine education at the Williamsburg Winery, where he is part of an enthusiastic team.
“I like the people who work here,” he says. “When we bring someone new into the fold, they get integrated into what we’re all doing no matter the role. We all have different jobs, but we come together and work well as a team.”
In addition to sampling new wines, Frey enjoys traveling, visiting with his family back in his hometown near Philadelphia and spending time with his rescue dog, Ami, a Labrador and Chow mix.
