Liquid Assets Wine Club Manager
There is never a dull moment with Wine Club Manager Shelby Kolpin. Boot camp workouts in the wee hours, cheering for the Giants, paddling on the river, book clubs, wine clubs, dinner parties- How does she find the time?
My day is everchanging...fixing this, cleaning that, or helping out wherever I can, for everyone! Never forgetting how beautiful Lambert Bridge Winery is and how fortunate I am to be a part of it. When not at the winery, I can be found at home in Geyserville with my wife, Mary. Otherwise, I'm at my vineyard creation with wine, views and memories.
Tasting Room Manager
Meet Jim McFadden, Renaissance Man. Not only is Jim a Certified Sommelier and master of all things wine, he is a talented musician, surfer and fly fisherman. We think he’d give “the most interesting man in the world” a run for his money.
Whenever our winemaker needs a hand, Mat is there. He ensures that our day to day operations are in line with our intense focus on quality. With fourteen years experience, the cellar couldn't be run under better hands.
Assistant Wine Club Manager
When Beth isn’t busy helping club members as half of the Dynamic Duo wine club team, she can often be found traveling to exotic locations, exploring the world through food and wine.
Nick grew up in Healdsburg and after high school he became enamored by the vast diversity and history of wine. While studying jazz theory and composition he helped friends make their own wine. After various cellar internships he landed in the tasting room at Lambert Bridge. Floating down Dry Creek with home brew, bicycling wine country roads, and a love for saxophonics include some of his past times.
Manager of Guest Experiences
Manager of Guest Experiences Sally Read has a propensity to break out into Beyoncé songs in between managing reservations and planning our big events. She keeps us all laughing-and dancing!
Vice President and General Manager
"I love how sharing a great bottle of wine among friends makes a conversation expand; knowing that I helped make that happen." Every day, she’s in our vineyards and winery helping to keep it happening.
Lucky for us that Winemaker Jennifer Higgins’ deep roots in Sonoma County and passion for wine called to her right before she packed up for medical school at Tulane. And it’s more than luck that she combines her degree in Biochemistry with her winemaking artistry and international experience to craft the world-class wines of Lambert Bridge. Best of all, she loves to share her stories, so be sure to ask for her when you visit!
Chief Financial Labrador
Most days Heinzy can be found at Kathy’s feet. When not working, Heinzy is always burning off extra energy with a game of "Can I get this Steelers pigskin in my mouth?"
Kathy supervises accounting and financial reporting for the winery. "I love that my job allows me to combine two passions, my desire to deliver detailed financial analysis to my team while at the same time getting to discover delicious wines."
Lead Wine Educator
Troy Daigle, our Lead Wine Educator, exudes Cajun charm and hospitality. A recent transplant to Sonoma County, he and his canine sidekick Sugar are enjoying the abundance of food, wine and beautiful terrain the area has to offer.
Sugar might be the tiniest winery dog ever, but she makes up in spirit and spunk what she lacks in size. When she’s not using her nimble little legs to keep from being stepped upon, she’s standing upright, showing off her “jazz hands” and giving high-fives to her fans!
Growing up in Healdsburg and working in wineries since he was 11 gave Mickey an early appreciation for the diversity of Sonoma County wines. He is known for running up Fitch Mountain every morning before work and enjoys hiking, camping and exploring paths less travelled.
Tasting Room Support
What was that “whoosh” of air that just whizzed by? Adriana, of course! Adriana works behind the scenes keeping the glassware clean, packing up wine orders and setting a beautiful table. A senior at Sonoma State studying Economics, Adriana is also our go-to for fashion advice. We all envy her energy and her style!
Business Development Manager
You’d never guess that Business Development Manager Emery Bodell moved here just six years ago from the Pacific Northwest since she knows virtually everyone in the Sonoma County wine business! She is enamored with local chefs (including her husband who happens to be one!) and the love of her life, her adorable, curly haired son.
Wine Educator Michelle Fleming loves meeting new people in the tasting room and chatting about wine, food and the love of her wine country lifestyle. Ask her to show you a picture of her darling cute toddler, too!
Landin left a San Francisco tech career to pursue a passion in winemaking. His cellar position at Lambert Bridge is his first permanent job in the wine industry. He occassionally offers tech support to the winery but he is at home when dirty and cold in the cellar.
Mariko Morikawa is the stealthy superhero of Lambert Bridge. She may appear to be quiet and unassuming but don’t let looks deceive: Mariko battles bureaucracy as our Compliance Manger, keeps the business running as our Administrative Coordinator and swoops in to save the day when office equipment or computer systems fail as our resident I.T. expert!
Our Lab Tech, Michaella Goldner, is native to the San Francisco Bay Area and grew up with an appreciation for the environment and an interest in science. Her love of wine began during her studies at UC Santa Barbara. When she’s not working in the lab, she spends her time with her husband, also a winemaker, exploring new places, trying new recipes and drinking good wine.
A fourth-generation Healdsburg native, Megan Hill’s training as a winemaker began when she was young. Her expertise shows in her meticulous winemaking practices—and in her ability to find the perfect local spots to forage for mushrooms, hike with her dog and fish!
"Establishing the philosophy and fully supporting the wonderful team at Lambert Bridge is a real pleasure. We enjoy traveling throughout the world but are the happiest when we return to our home at Lambert Bridge."
