Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz
The 2002 vintage release honours Rhonda Sexton, Key Account Sales Manager in our Victorian branch office.
“I have been incredibly lucky. I have been a Yalumba salesperson since 1985 and I cannot imagine working for anyone else. I love Yalumba, who else would pick a ‘nobody’ like me for this great honour?
My job has been more about forging relationships with my customers than selling; most people show a nice side sooner or later! In all this time, I have only had one nasty moment when a customer made me cry. I went next door, had a hair wash and dry then marched back into the store. I wrote the biggest order ever!
Actually, it’s not so much a job, as a pleasant negotiation with friends. Nowadays, we often band together and head off to the track for a day at the races. I love frocking up for a big day out with the girls.”
Ronda is industrious, always positive, genuinely caring and a good fun person. All of us who have been lucky enough to work with her can only wonder that she has not only carved out a formidable reputation in the Wine Trade of Victoria but raised a husband and three children and now moves confidently into her role of grandmother to Cooper and Jack.
