Beth Novak Milliken is the President of Spottswoode Vineyard and Winery, having joined forces with her mother in the fall of 1987. After completing high school in St. Helena, she attended college at UCLA. She spent her junior year studying in Europe, and it was at that time her interest in wine developed. Beth graduated with a degree in economics, after which she worked for four years as a sales representative for a wine brokerage company based in San Francisco. In addition to overseeing their family business, Beth is a past (and first woman!) President of the Napa Valley Vintners Association, and she participates in numerous volunteer and philanthropic events. Beth and her mother, Mary Novak, were Honorary Chairs of Auction Napa Valley 2010, which was a great success and raised upwards of $8,500,000, benefiting many nonprofits in Napa Valley. On a personal level, she derives great enjoyment from her two sons and, ever dedicated to health and fitness, involves herself in many outdoor sports activities, some of them with her husband, John. Among her favorites are mountain biking, telemark skiing and hiking.
