Fred and Sally met at Lowell High School in San Francisco. From quality custom construction to premium grape growing to running a winery, they have always worked best as a team, taking pride in all their endeavors! Sally is probably the biggest fan of our Sauvignon Blanc, while Fred is partial to our 100% Cabernet Sauvignons, Gate Block and Montaire.
Originally from Nebraska, Napa life was always a dream for Wendy and her husband, Leo. In early 2013, they made a permanent home for themselves and their dogs, who were happy to settle down after moving about 10 times to different cities across the country. Wendy's intention is to never trade in her current office view. When she's not in her office, she can usually be found cooking and entertaining with a glass from her favorite bottle, Single Vineyard Select Gate Block Cabernet Sauvignon.
Andy grew up in the vineyard, working with family clearing, planting, and at the age of 16, he worked as a cellar rat for other wineries. He has worked for several wineries in Napa and Sonoma County and has been winemaker for Schweiger Vineyards since year one. In his free time he enjoys playing saxophone, cheering for the San Jose Sharks, and anything Disney!
Becca graduated from Fresno State University with a Bachelors of Science in Enology. She worked as a cellar hand on the Leelanau Peninsula of Michigan before finding her home at Schweiger Vineyards. Becca spends her days working with cooperage in our barrel room, racking tanks of wine in the winery, and out on the crush pad with Andy during harvest. Outside of work, Becca can usually be found antiquing, hiking, or pairing her favorite Schweiger wine — Dedication — with dark chocolate and classic cinema. She is proud to be fulfilling her dream of making wine in the beautiful Napa Valley.
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 home brewing 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.
Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio, Paula met Andy (our winemaker) in high school while they were exchange students in Spain. 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 ®).
Hailing from Chicago, Michelle “caught the wine bug” at the age of 19. Her dream of working and living in a beautiful wine region became a reality in fall of 2012, when she left her cushy corporate job in Philadelphia and moved to the Napa Valley. She has not looked back, and also admits that she does not miss the Chicago winters! Her favorite wine is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon.
A Sonoma County wine country native residing in Santa Rosa, and a recent addition to the Schweiger Vineyards Team, Adam brings many years of wine hospitality and sales experience to the team. In his spare time, Adam enjoys hiking with his wife at the trails of Bodega Bay and Donner Lake in Truckee, enjoying Alfred Hitchcock movies, their cat Izzy, and his favorite varietals of malbec, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon with a juicy rib-eye steak. Adam’s wine of choice is our 2014 Malbec.
