Rebekah Stoltz Weeman
Winery and Vender Relationships
Living in Istanbul may have played a seven-year supporting role in her life, but this third generation San Franciscan has planted her soles in Napa Valley where philanthropy and motherhood now take center stage. Rebekah's degree in Cultural Anthropology from Mills College combined with caregiver support through programs like Napa Valley Hospice & Adult Day Services, enable her to patiently juggle the management of the WW&S® winery relationships with the needs of our charity partners, as well as her three-year old son. When she's not procuring wineries for WW&S® events, she lends nonprofit industry insight to the WWS team through experience as a member of the Board of Directors for the Tug McGraw Foundation and a volunteer for the Community Programs & Grants division of Napa Valley Community Foundation.
Whether she's horsing around in Hermes riding boots while embracing her equestrian enthusiasm, attending SF Giants baseball games, or entertaining wine country visitors with her impressive ballroom boogie shoes, Rebekah savors life to the fullest and brings an infectious passion for giving and an enthusiastic spark to the WW&S® team.
