Napa Valley Vintners has appointed a new board for 2012, headed by Rick Jones of Jones Family Vineyards.

The non-profit trade association's latest board will lead the body's work on "the promotion, protection and enhancement of the Napa Valley, its wines and its vintners," said a spokeswoman.

Joining the new president Jones will be Russ Weis of Silverado Vineyards as vice-president, Janet Viader of Viader Vineyard and Winery as secretary and Eric Sklar of Alpha Omega as treasurer.

Other board members include Bruce Cakebread of Cakebread Cellars; Susan Boswell of Chateau Boswell Winery; Kathleen Heitz Myers of Heitz Wine Cellars; Michael Honig of Honig Vineyard and Winery; Pat Stotesbery of Ladera Vineyards; Doug Shafer of Shafer Vineyards; and Bob Torres of Trinchero Napa Valley.

"This is a wonderful opportunity to work more fully with this outstanding trade association," said Jones. "It has been an honour to serve on the board and with so many important initiatives coming to fruition, I think all of the board members are excited with the opportunities before us in 2012."
