Growing up in Modesto, California, it wasn’t long after a move to Sonoma County that Lexi knew the only career for her was within the wine industry. After meeting our Estate Lead, Joanne at a wine event in 2021, Lexi had dreams of one day joining the team. We are excited to welcome Lexi to the Coursey Graves family in her role as our Membership Experience Manager. Our members are in great hands!

Where are you from? When did you move to Wine Country?
Lexi: I moved to wine country in 2018 from Modesto, California and had my first tasting room job in Dry Creek Valley a few months later. 

Did you always want to pursue a career in the wine industry?
Lexi: I graduated from Sonoma State with a degree in History and had hopes of teaching or going to law school, but as the story usually goes…I fell in love with wine and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. 

If you had to pick just one Coursey Graves favorite, which wine would it be?
Lexi: I absolutely love the Bennett Estate Red Blend. It is so expressive of the terroir on our mountain top estate. Each vintage varies with what the soil/climate gives us that year, each time you open a bottle it gives you a sense of time and place.

When you’re not enjoying wine, what are you up to?
Lexi: I currently reside in Windsor, California. It’s a warm, quaint town close to many amazing vineyards and estates. I enjoy hiking, cooking with my family and friends and tending my Hoya (wax plant) collection. 

Should we keep our eyes peeled for any new or limited-release wines this year?
Lexi: I am excited for a few library verticals we will be offering this year. They are extremely limited and Pinnacle and Elite members receive first access. If you’d like first access to these limited vintages, please reach out to me and we can review your membership options. 

What’s in store for the Coursey Graves Wine Club this year? Anything in particular you are excited about?
Lexi: I am thrilled to offer more member events moving forward. With our beautiful estate, there are so many opportunities and I can’t wait to curate new experiences just for our club members.
