Sasha Levine was born and raised in Benicia, California. From early on, she was attracted to the hospitality industry, studied Hospitality Management, and worked at several high-end Napa Valley hotels. Sasha happened into the wine industry by chance. When the 2014 earthquake struck Napa, her hotel was forced to close for several months. During that time she was offered a role at Cliff Lede Vineyards and quickly rose through the ranks.
In her free time, Sasha loves spending time with her husband, two young children, two cats, a dog, and an 80-gallon tank full of exotic fish.
