    Devin Ruddick – Hook and Ladder Vineyards and Winery – Tasting Room Manager &  Donations & Events Manager
    I have spent the last 10 years honing my hospitality skills as part of the Hook and Ladder team. I excel in a group atmosphere and relish the opportunity to strategize and problem solve with others. I would like to be a part of the Wine Road Board to further connect with other members while giving a voice for ideas, triumphs and challenges wineries face.
