Hugh Reimers Named President of Foley Family Wines

January 28, 2018

Hugh Reimers has been serving as Chief Administrative Officer of Foley Family Wines since September of 2017, and as of January 2018 he has been promoted to President of the company. Hugh brings an array of invaluable experienced to our team, including 8 years with Yalumba Wine Company of South Australia, 8 years with Constellation Wines, and most recently he spent 8 years with Jackson Family Wines working as their COO & President.

When asked about his new role, Hugh said, “It is exciting to work alongside a business genius like Bill Foley and an honor to help shape the Legacy of Foley Family Wines.” Hugh has a hand in every aspect of our business, but is most looking to leverage our iconic vineyard and winery assets by accelerating the growth of our luxury branded wine portfolio.

Hugh doesn’t just bring experience and knowledge to the table, he brings a breath of fresh air and a flair for everything the Foley Family stands for. Hugh is a family man, a father of two girls, Rikki (8) Toni (5). When not working, he enjoys golfing and spending time on his ranch, riding around on his ATV and farming. When it comes to wine tasting, Hugh said his favorite Foley winery is Chalk Hill, “The wines are exceptional quality and represent affordable luxury.”
