Amanda Carder

With 24 years in the Napa Valley and over 18 years working in the wine industry, Amanda has been fortunate to have held many types of roles that have helped her to create a body of experience and industry connections that she draws from on a daily basis to assist her in her work. In addition to her work with Parallel Wines and several other highly regarded Napa Valley wineries, she launched an online wine retail platform in 2021 called Reciprocity Wines with the intention of promoting and selling small production local wine brands to a broader market.

Prior to being on her own, Amanda acted as Tasting Room and Hospitality Director for several other wine brands. But it hasn’t been all things wine in Amanda’s career. She has worked as a Geologist, as an Inspector for a Civil Engineering firm, a Personal Trainer, and even a Tour Guide!

In addition to her many roles, her most important one is as Mom to her daughter, Katelyn, and son, Joseph. She has also served on the board of the Napa Valley Hospitality Forum as their Innovations Director and was also a board member of the Wine Country Wine Chicks.
