Hospitality and Sales Team

Addie Braun
Tasting Room

Addie grew up in Minnesota, but has spent the past 10 years in NY, Paris, and Chicago.  She recently moved to San Francisco with her dog Fizz & cat Fuzz to be close enough to escape to Napa on the weekends.  She also leads a team at Google and is a Level Two Sommelier.  Her favorite bottle is our Estate Malbec.

Matt Denny
Tasting Room and Wine Club Coordinator
Born and raised locally, Matt loves Napa and Sonoma and can't imagine living anywhere else.  He is a self-proclaimed beer and wine snob, photography hobbyist (catch his work on our social media pages), outdoor enthusiast, and terrible at golf - yet can beat you at a game of HORSE anyday.  He is here to make all of your wine related dreams come true and looks forward to hosting you and sharing his current favorite, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon.

JoAnn Robinson
Tasting Room

JoAnn is a native of Illinois, part of the Chicago Bears legacy (her father is in the NFL Hall of Fame!), and now lives in Napa with her husband Jim. She enjoys keeping up with her six children and their families, including twelve grandchildren. Given the choice JoAnn would pour a glass of Cabernet Franc, any vintage will do.

Jill (Sandy) Farmer
Marketing Director

Jill is a Napa native, with a mixed background of hospitality and non-profit management.  After a few experiments and adventures from Silicon Valley to Chicago, she is happy to be home, enjoying the best wines, views, and people in the world.  In particular an older vintage Merlot, new husband Lucas, and their two pups anywhere in our beautiful Valley.

Paula Schweiger
Tasting Room

Hailing from Cincinnati,Ohio, Paula met Andy (our winemaker) while they were exchange students in Spain during high school. In addition to helping out in the tasting room, Paula also teaches Kindergarten here in St. Helena. She is an avid walker, loves reading and spending time with her two children, and likes to quilt when she can find the time. You will usually find her enjoying a glass of whatever Andy has decided pairs best with dinner that evening (hopefully Dedication ®).

Wendy Vogt
Tasting Room Supervisor

Originally from Nebraska, Napa life was always a dream for Wendy, her husband Leo, and their dogs. In early 2013 they became permanent residents after moving about ten times to different cities across the country, and she intends to never trade in her current office view. She can usually be found cooking and entertaining with a glass of her favorite bottle, Single Vineyard Select Gate Block Cabernet Sauvignon.

Bill Wiebalk
General Manager

Born and raised in Northern California, Bill joined Schweiger Vineyards after a focused career in the premium wine industry. When he isn’t overseeing various aspects of the winery he is homebrewing the best beer in the state (in our opinion), keeping bees, and spending time kayaking and mountain biking with his wife Dayna. Bill’s bottle of choice is our versatile Chardonnay.
