Sarah Newcomb


After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business supervision and management from Florida Southwestern State College, Sarah Newcomb now works full time with the Lee County Department of Transportation. And she still finds the time to pursue her passions as owner of The Wine Room and S. Newcomb Photography.

“My passion and experience include business, the community and wine,” she says. “I traveled the world visiting more than 100 wineries. The Wine Room brings all those elements together and allows me to fully engage in my passion.”

Newcomb is also active in the community and serves as a volunteer for Our Mother’s Home, Lee County Public Schools and Junior Achievement. She was also the first person to serve as full-time president and CEO of the Estero Chamber of Commerce.

What are your future aspirations?

My goal is to always experience life in new ways, be grateful for every little thing and to inspire others. I want others to look at where I started and how far I’ve come.

In the future, I plan to franchise my business and have multiple locations. I hope The Wine Room continues to have a greater and greater impact on our community as it continues to grow while also inspiring others to chase their dreams.
