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!
