Faith Henschel-Ventrello  - Owner

Faith graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in Comparative Literature and Classical Studies. However, her most productive time was spent in the unscholarly world of college radio where she was Music Director of KCMU (now KEXP in Seattle). This led to a 12 year period of working as an executive in the Music Industry including Elektra in NYC, and Capitol and Virgin in Los Angeles. While at Virgin Faith completed the Executive MBA program at Pepperdine University.
In 1998, Steve Ventrello and Faith began Parador Cellars which produces Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. In order to be closer to this project they relocated to Napa in 2000 where she proceeded to spend the next two years working in the then doomed music-based sector.  In 2002, Steve and Faith became partners and started Vintage Wine Marketing.
