Area Sales Manager, OH, MI, IN, KY

Lily Dunson, Area Sales Manager

My first experience selling wine was 187s at the sports bar where I worked while attending The Ohio State University for Hospitality Management. Needless to say, that wasn’t exactly where I fell in love.

As I learned more about the hospitality wholesale industry, my interests were piqued and I was lucky enough to get a job out of school working for a wine distributor in my home and current town, Columbus, Ohio. As soon as I started learning more about and drinking good wine, I was hooked.  During my distributor position I always had an affinity for Folio as a company, truly believing in their values and wines represented and I am thrilled to now be a part of the family.

In my wine travels so far, Bordeaux has been my favorite. I can picture the views from the hills in Saint-Émilion like it was yesterday. In addition to the extraordinary wines I enjoyed, one of my other favorite things about France is that they have Buckeye trees, O-H!

Outside of representing the best wines in the world, I spend my time volunteering, contributing to the local wine consumption with friends and family, and living out my travel dreams with my husband Mike.
