Growing up in Elk Rapids, Emily is a proud Northern, MI native. She has spent much of her career in the corporate world; her job experience ranging from hospitality to insurance and even a stint in commercial real estate in Portland, OR.
A close friend of our Tasting Room Manager Lindsay Miller, Emily originally started working around the tasting room on the busy weekends to help out her friend and the the rest of the BHV family. These occasional shifts opened the door for her journey into the wine industry and weekend shifts slowly became a full time job.
Leaving the corporate world behind and making all things wine her new career path has been the best decision she has made in her entire life so far, Emily says. Her passion for wine and all its many facets is obvious when you hear her talk about it.
Our motto at Bowers is taste, learn, enjoy and Emily works to embody that motto everyday by sharing her knowledge and excitement about wine and the roots of our business.
Emily is our resident reservation specialist, so on top of pouring wine for our wonderful guests, she works closely with the local shuttle companies to schedule tastings for wine tours. She also hosts vineyard tours on occasion, and schedules a number of our proposal, anniversary, and other special packages.
When she’s not in the tasting room, Emily can be found hiking the trails in the area, indulging in the foodie scene of downtown Traverse City, and most importantly, enjoying a glass (or two) of wine!
Enjoy access to latest wine releases, events, incredible promotions, and more!
