Get to know the people behind The Pines 1852.
Founder and Grape Grower
Lonnie spends most of the day getting dirty in the vineyards before returning home to enjoy vino and his wife’s home-made bruschetta which he boasts is “the best bruschetta in the world!”
Sierra keeps the business in the family by joining The Pines twelve years ago. A Linfield College graduate with a B.A. in Business and Mass Communication, Sierra keeps the business running smoothly on a day-to-day basis. Sierra handles everything from running the Tasting Room to working with distributors and implementing our marketing plan. Her favorite part of the “job” is hosting events out at The Pines Estate so she can interact with wine club members, supporters, and friends.
Linda is the support of the family, offering suggestions and guidance for new business ventures. She helps Sierra organize special events and make sure all parties go on without a hitch.
