Dhane Chesson serves as the National Accounts Director for the DOCa Rioja marketing program in the United States and Canada. Since 2009, Dhane has worked with the DOCa Rioja creating innovative programming with corporations including Delta Airlines, Disney World, Marriott International, Bloomin’ Brands, Landry’s Corp. and MGM Resorts International. Dhane is proud to be a part of the North American team that is expanding Rioja’s global footprint.

 

With over fourteen years of ever expanding wine industry involvement, Dhane has extensive experience as a marketing & trade PR consultant, speaker, wine buyer, importer, judge and writer.

 

Her career in the wine industry began with successful launches of two acclaimed Florida retail projects while publishing wine articles in industry magazines. Shifting her focus to marketing and education, she has consulted for Bordeaux L’Ecole du Vin, European importers, various Spanish wine making projects as well as several Fortune 500 companies.

 

Dhane credits her lifelong travels on family holidays in the Basque Country and Spain for sparking her passion for culinary pursuits and later continued interests as a wine professional.

 

With Dhane’s in-depth knowledge of Spain & Spanish wine and having deep family roots here in the South, promoting Rioja Spain at the Savannah Food and Wine Festival seems like a natural fit.
