Trevor & Stephanie Sheehan

 

Trevor and Stephanie Sheehan opened The Corner in Napa, Calif. in July 2016.  The couple had wanted to open a restaurant for several years, and when the Napa riverfront property became available on Main Street, they jumped on the opportunity to make the space their own, with a menu that felt personal and vast cellar and bar to satisfy every guest. 

Prior to owning the restaurant, the couple focused primarily on the growth of their wine business, Precision Wine Co., formerly Balius Cellars, which produces and sells more than 150,000 cases of affordable wine brands each year across the globe.

With nearly 20 years of experience in the hospitality profession, Stephanie oversees The Corner’s management, marketing and operations.  Her background includes respected companies such as the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill and Alan Wong’s Restaurant.  Throughout her career she served various roles beginning in the pastry kitchen as a cook, and later transitioned to the operations side of the business eventually focusing on the sales, management and execution of weddings, catering and events. 

Trevor has been an entrepreneur in the wine business since 2008 when he moved to Napa Valley from Dallas, Tx.  After spending nearly a decade learning from the master winemakers of Burgundy and Bordeaux by collecting and trading the world’s finest wines, he became determined to create brands that unlock the essence and flavors of these treasures at affordable prices. In 2009, he started producing wine and made 300 cases of Napa Valley Chardonnay from the Carneros AVA and 100 cases of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.  Trevor also consults with the California Wine Institute assisting wineries with exporting their wines to other countries.

Stephanie holds an Associates degree from the California Culinary Academy of San Francisco.  She also attended the University of San Francisco in pursuit of a Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

Trevor achieved both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Accounting from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.  

The couple married in 2013 and resides in Napa with their two-year old daughter Brooklyn.
