Christie Mavety Christie Mavety Growing up on the estate, it was natural for Christie to work in the vineyard, in the plant nursery, and in the winery cellar during her high school years as a summer job. During those years she became familiar with the operation of the vineyards and as well as the processing of the grapes from harvest to bottling. Christie’s formal education started in the Okanagan and then transferred to the University of Victoria where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Art History. Her interest in the wine industry continued as she took Professional Wine Education Courses and then successfully completed the International Sommelier Guild Diploma Program. Throughout these years wines and foods continued to be very important to her as she continued to complete further education and work experience. We are fortunate to have Christie join us at the management level in Sales and Marketing. Responsibilities include personal contact with our customers in the management and operation of the tasting room as well as through phone calls and email. Christie is the new marketing face of Blue Mountain. She ensures the image and reputation of the Blue Mountain winery will continue to be promoted through Mavety family presence at winery events, through the media and trade shows as well as coordinating refreshed and new designs in the labels, boxes and packaging of Blue Mountain products.
