Though classically trained as a violinist and an operatic tenor, Daniel Vu ultimately left music behind to pursue his passion for wine. He earned an MBA in the marketing and management of wine and spirits at INSEEC in Bordeaux. His first internship led to a role at VINEXPO, a wine industry exhibition company.

In 2007, an opportunity arose to become the Export Manager of a company he had long admired, Moët-Hennessey in Napa Valley. Daniel gained further experience as Riedel’s Director of West Coast Wineries before joining Heitz Cellar in 2011.

In his role as National Sales Manager, Daniel develops business and customer relationships throughout the country, managing Heitz Cellar’s distributorship with wholesale partners.

Daniel feels honored to be part of this legendary winery’s team. “Heitz is one of the wineries that still stands tall and shines bright as a historic Napa Valley legacy. It’s a piece of Napa’s history.”

Heitz Cellar is undeniably one of Napa Valley's most iconic and historic wineries. Founded in 1961, Joe Heitz helped define the modern Napa era and its place among California and the world's most prestigious wineries. Join the Dallas wine team and special guest, Daniel Vu, Heitz’s national sales director, as we showcase the diverse lineup including their most renowned wine, Martha's Vineyard. Paired with our world-class chef-crafted fare, this event is sure to be a memorable one!
