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!
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!
Dr. Greg honed his lab techniques while earning his Ph.D. in biology and practiced Mindfulness by meditating with Buddhist monks all while training for and competing in Powerlifting competitions! It’s no wonder that Dr. Greg found his way onto the production team at Lambert Bridge—he is just as complex and nuanced as our wine!
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.
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.
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?
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.
Guest Experience Coordinator
Don’t let Erin’s youth fool you: She’s an expert at all things food and wine. Luckily for us, she discovered her passion early on and graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management. As if that weren’t enough, she continued her studies at the Culinary Institute of America as well as earning her Sommelier certification from the Court of Master Sommeliers. She loves nothing more than to engage her vast knowledge and love of wine and food to create the perfect guest experience at Lambert Bridge and, as many of our club members know, she’s an event planner extraordinaire!
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.
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.
Maddy Thoreson is the ultimate Lambert Bridge ambassador so it’s no wonder that she is the first person you will meet when you visit us on the weekends. Born and raised in Healdsburg and a graduate of Sonoma State University, Maddy is full of information about all things local. And if you feel like taking a hike or finding a way to exercise after a long day of wine tasting, she’s an expert and can inspire you in that area as well
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!
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.
"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."
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."
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.
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!
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!
See Sugar in action...
