Tasting Room Coordinator
Melissa Vazquez

Melissa was raised on the Bently Ranch, and always wanted to be part of the Bently family. Her father, Salvador Vazquez, has worked at the ranch for over fifteen years. Growing up within the Bently environment exposed her to copious experiences and knowledge of the ranch.

Melissa has a very diverse work history that focuses on hospitality, customer service, and retail. Her biggest priority is to create a memorable experience that will have customers reminiscing for years to come. In her free time, she loves to spend time enjoying new foods with her daughter Valentine. She also loves letting her creative juices flow through her makeup and special effects makeup work. Melissa’s qualifications include a WSET Spirits Level II certification.
