She is the President/Founder of Wine Country Entertainment, a full service entertainment agency located in Napa Valley, that provides professional talents including musicians, DJs, dancers and dance bands for private events in the Napa, Sonoma and Healdsburg areas.
Angela, a professional classical pianist started playing piano when she was four years old in New York City and continued her training at Julliard School of Music Pre-College. Instead of pursuing a music degree, she graduated from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in Washington DC in 1986 and delved into legal marketing focusing her attention on the direct response television industry, being part of a legal team matching celebrity entertainers with producers/marketers and clients with respective attorneys needing legal assistance.
In 1998, she moved to Napa Valley as Hospitality Director of V Sattui Winery, managing and developing corporate and wedding programs until 2004, where she went back to her musical roots and created Wine Country Piano Music & Strings, which later evolved into Wine Country Entertainment in 2010.
