Biography

Born and raised in Napa Valley, Laura attended local schools while watching her parents David and Joye Long build the David Arthur brand. As soon as she was able, Laura was helping at the winery however she could: stamping cases during bottling, mopping floors during harvest and inputting sales orders in the family’s home office. Looking back, her parent’s unrelenting work ethic was ultimately the catalyst for Laura to garner a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing from St. Mary’s College of California in 2007. After graduating, Laura continued to pursue her love for business, and in 2008 earned an MBA from St. Mary’s College with a concentration in Finance. Today, David and Laura work side by side in the original barn, sharing the responsibility of running the day-to-day operations of the winery and vineyards. With the help of a talented team, the Long’s and Bystrowski’s are committed to continuing the family tradition of hand crafting, exceptional quality, limited production wines.
