Hannah Gold, Talent BuyerThe latest addition to the New York-based programming team, Hannah helps secure the diverse and unique bookings for which City Winery has become well known. Beyond that, she works on nearly every aspect of a given event, from getting the artists in the door to making sure they have every request on their rider.
If she's not at the Winery, she's making the rounds of New York's local music scene, curating her all already too-large-for-her-apartment record collection or trying to figure out how to get down to Nashville for a 28-hour “work related” field trip. She will also slay the competition in a friendly game of Neil Young trivia.
To book an artist or inquire more about programming at City Winery, please contact her directly.
Alienor Reisner, Private Events DirectorWhen it comes to event planning, organization and execution, Aliénor has plenty of savoir faire to go around. This deep passion for events brought Aliénor to City Winery all the way from her native France (with a few stops along the way). Her university years in Bordeaux, position as a project manager for Sud de France wines, and production of various events throughout New York ensured that wine was never far from her career. With that in mind, it’s no wonder that Aliénor’s other loves include fresh foods and classic French recipes, best paired with Mediterranean sunshine whenever possible. If not, Rockaways will do just fine.
Suzanna Cole, Events ManagerHailing from just north of New York City, Suzanna is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan. A proud Wolverine with a dual degree in Biology and Anthropology, she found she relished her responsibilities outside of her studies, organizing various business operations while working at a local gelateria and coordinating the details of her dance group’s performances. A summer spent in Rome helped foster Suzanna’s love of Italian culture, cuisine, and language, as well as an unhealthy obsession with gelato.Finding herself back home in the Empire State, Suzanna was introduced to the world of fine dining and private events interning with Blue Hill at Stone Barns. She is incredibly excited to grow with the team at City Winery, and enjoy a glass of wine or two while she’s at it.

Working as a publicist for independent bands and artists, she landed media placements such as Rolling Stone, Billboard, Entertainment Tonight, Perez Hilton, People, Huffington Post and more.

Marc Colletti, Production and Technical DirectorMarc is one of many important players behind the scenes (and often in them) of the City Winery's nightly spectacles and musical performances. Marc grew up in the small upstate town of Hamilton, New York before graduating from the Institute of Audio Research in Manhattan in 2006. Following a subsequent internship at Atlantic Records, Marc quickly delved into New York City's vibrant music scene. A house production technician at the Blue Note NYC, and the midtown's Millennium Hotel Hudson Theatre, Marc has also worked throughout the tri-state area, for a vast array of clientele in freelance production.
Marc exudes a strong tradition of technical and personal charisma at City Winery that is needed to advance and execute its over 500 concerts and events annually. Most often working one-on-one with the artists and clients who frequent City Winery NYC (his career including faces that range Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, Sheryl Crow, Mos Def, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and New York Rangers Hockey), he brings together every element of a show for an unforgettable evening.
Jared Rodriguez, Venue ManagerJared hails from the farm fields of rural Delaware Township, NJ.
