Judy Byron & Diane Kresley

Firmly believing in the power of two, Diane and Judy have been partners in crime since being hired at Grand Vin at the same time 15 years ago and haven’t stop playing the music since. While Diane was working as a waitress in Durango, Judy was busy doing the same in Crested Butte, and both were ready for a change.

Diane currently resides in Eagle, Colorado, and is Grand Vin’s division manager for the Western Slope. She contributes greatly to the success of her six sales reps and has deep connections in all of the communities she works in, although she secretly admits that Crested Butte is her home away from Eagle. Diane holds a WSET Level 3 certification and is one of the most knowledgeable and hardworking people in the business. Music, food, travel, skiing and great friends are just a few of her passions. 

Judy has been living in Crested Butte since 1985 and she and her husband enjoy ranch life with three dogs, three cats, and three horses. Their two grown children visit home frequently. Music, food, travel, skiing, camping and riding horses are what Judy looks forward to when she’s not selling wine on Elk Avenue! She holds a Level 1 Sommelier Certificate and is hoping to complete the WSET Level 2 in August.

Both look forward to sharing a glass of wine together, with you!
