The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Lynda Opiela as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in e-commerce. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to recognize Lynda with this important honor,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her perseverance, work ethic and leadership qualities are an inspiration to all women.”
Lynda Opiela is President at Complete Home Bar, which specializes in wine and spirits for home parties. With extensive experience and education in both interior design and viticulture and enology, she brings her skill set to her own business where her talents can be utilized.
“Because I love to entertain at home with cocktails, wine, beer and food, I wanted to share my passion with others,” Ms. Opiela said.
Ms. Opiela worked as a freelance Interior Designer from 1989 to 2006. She specialized in historical restoration, murals and floral arrangements and worked on revitalization of historical homes and buildings, including her own family home. Her first foray into the wine business came in 2002, when she took a position as Sales Manager at Fox Estate Winery. That position catapulted her into opening The Wine Shop of Yakima in 2003. Upon selling her shop in 2005, she was offered the position of Tasting Room and Sales Manager at Bonair Winery. While working at the winery, Ms. Opiela educated the public about Washington and Rattlesnake Hills AVA Wines. After spending time in the business networking field from 2011 to 2014, she established Complete Home Bar in June 2014.
