At Luke’s Wings, Alina plays an active role in supporting corporate and managing individual sponsorships, executing special events and participating in community outreach.

Prior to joining Luke’s Wings, Alina held a succession of global policy jobs including working for Congresswoman, Lynn Woolsey (D-Sonoma County); JBS International; a global wine trade organization; and the public policy arm of the accounting firm, Grant Thornton.

Alina believes in staying involved and giving back. She is an avid supporter of several charitable domestic and international organizations, including the Together Foundation and St. Andrew’s Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of Washington, DC, in their ongoing campaign to provide relief to those impacted by the Ukrainian-Russian war. 

Originally from Kazakhstan, Alina emigrated to the U.S. in 2000 when she won a scholarship to attend the St. Catherine’s School in Richmond, Virginia. Along with her family, she helped found the award-winning Sonoma County-based vineyard, Terra de Promissio, and she remains an active brand ambassador educating wine connoisseurs and consumers on her family’s wine.
