Dave Specter, Bells Up Winemaker & Owner

After several years of making wine in his Cincinnati basement—and upon the insistence of his wife Sara—Bells Up winemaker and owner Dave left a successful and lucrative career as a corporate tax attorney (that made him stressed, sick and miserable) to learn how to make wine as a pro. Also on his resume, 20+ years as a French Horn player, an MBA, a certificate in enology from Washington State University, and a masochistic passion for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At Bells Up, Dave manages all winemaking activities, vineyard maintenance and development, and tractor driving. He loves nothing more than to share his wines in private tasting experiences with Bells Up guests.

Sara Pearson Specter, Bells Up CMO & Money Honey

As Bells Up Winery’s “money honey,” Sara has been financing her husband’s pursuit of a winemaking career ever since he left his job as a corporate tax attorney at the beginning of 2009. She’s responsible for all marketing and event planning for the winery (her favorite “non-profit” client). Her day job is as a freelance marketing consultant (aka “Marketing Mercenary”) who specializes in business-to-business storytelling for industrial and manufacturing companies. Focused primarily on the supply chain and material handling field, she enjoys making engineers sound like human beings with whom you’d like to share a beer.
