Meghan Zobeck

winemaker

Meghan Zobeck is passionate about crafting wines of elegance, practicing low intervention winemaking methods, and caring for the environment. Over the past few years, she has been actively transitioning all of our vineyards to regenerative farming. This helps the vineyard function as a system designed by nature and includes diverse cover crops, pollinator gardens, and the use of animals instead of tilling.

A Colorado native, Meghan fell in love with wine and winemaking while she was negotiating contracts for the NFL. She shifted careers and fully immersed herself in the wine industry, participating in harvests around the world including Colchagua Valley, Chile, Piedmont, Italy, Bordeaux, France, as well as experience at Screaming Eagle and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in Napa Valley.

Angela Berlogar

Membership & Guest Relations

Although Angela Berlogar grew up in the wine country, she first discovered an interest in the wine industry while pursuing a degree at Sonoma State University. The University offered a Wine Business Strategies & Marketing program that required an internship, which Angela fulfilled by working at a tasting room in Healdsburg. There, she developed an authentic passion for wine.

Angela is inspired by the opportunity to work with our passionate team to promote regenerative farming, to elevate the guest experience at our winery, and to enhance the value of membership in our Heirloom Society.
