Kathleen Southworth


Hostess with the Mostess in our Tasting Room and our Toad Club Events

Kathleen joined the Toad Hollow team in December 2006 to take charge of the Toad Club. While this job can often be a juggling act combined with keeping multiple plates spinning in the air, much of Kathleen's work is also fun and allows her penchant for creativity to thrive. In addition to handling the club correspondence, details and database, Kathleen now also supervises the Tasting Room and DTC sales as well as sharing the ribbeting news and happenings at the Hollow through posts on Facebook, Twitter and our website blog. Since her husband Bill has been a chef most of his career, Kathleen finds it easy to discover great wine and food pairings at home as well as at work. She often says 'He cooks and I bring home the wine' but Kathleen knows her way around the kitchen, too, especially if it has to do with baking. Kathleen frequently wears the party planner hat and organizes the club wine pick up parties and our annual summer barbecue at the Toad Hollow Ranch, where club members and friends get to kick up their heels, dine and dance and tip some Toad with us in person. Please check out our events page – we hope you can join us!


Cherie Zouzounis


Quicker than Quickbooks

Cherie joined the Toad Hollow Vineyards Crew in 2005, but has been involved in the wine industry for many years which is how she met her husband Alex. They share a love of food, wine, travel and spending time with family. Cherie works with Erik in the financial department. While her teenage son keeps her active with his sports, her “spare” time is dedicated to decorative painting and a multitude of hobbies which make for a full time schedule. Cherie enjoys walking at lunch with her co-toads through the vineyard property and has become a pied piper with the animals that she has come across through the years. Everything from dogs and cats to stray turtles, snakes and bald eagles. Her love of our Rose' and Chardonnay make her a perfect match with the Toad Hollow Family.
