The Lane Family

Our Staff

Dave_100David Lane – Growing up on the family farm milking cows and throwing hay bales Dave has worked this land for several decades.  Embracing the changing agricultural landscape he enjoys the challenge of marketing a different quality beverage.


Julie_100Julie Lane – Bringing her drive as an educator to Snow Farm, Julie wants the customers to experience all we have to offer. It starts with the award winning wine of course. But add in the history of the area and the natural beauty of the vineyard then toss with local art and it is indeed a magical experience. In addition she will work tirelessly to make your special event at the winery spectacular.

DSCF2718Patrick Barrelet is the artist behind the wines. A part owner, Patrick has been the head wine meister since day one with a degree in Oenology from the University of Dijon in Burgundy, France, one of the great wine-producing regions in the world. He majored in Pinot Noir, which is a way better major than any other I’ve ever heard of. He is an award winning wine maker many times over and is tolerant over our lack of appreciation of Canadian pastimes, like curling.

IMG_1819Alex Lane came with the land. Seriously. We bought the land for the vineyard and winery from his grandparents, Fred and Gladys. I neglected to read the fine print in the sales agreement that said that Alex was an agricultural easement that ran with the land. So, here is and here he shall remain. The good news is he won’t bite if you want to feed him, but bring plenty of Wally’s Bagels.

DSCF2719Cassandra Martin Assistant wine meister Cassandra has done everything to do with Snow Farm, she is actually interested in all aspects of the business – from winemaking to retail.



Thereza Cononi or Tree as she is commonly know around the island, teaches Vinyasa Flow, yoga classes regularly at Snow Farm.  She also enjoys bar tending in the tasting room, as well as being part of the amazing special events team.  Tree believes it’s good to know where you food comes from and it’s even better if you know where your wine comes from too.

IMG_4132[1]Elizabeth Vachon is another friendly bar tender you might meet any given day of the week across the mahogany, in the tasting room.  She loves sharing Vermont’s culture through a farm to glass experience. When Elizabeth isn’t bar tending at the tasting room she is enjoying her family and kids, William and Charlie.

DSCF2603Nick Lane has called South Hero home his whole life.  The agricultural landscape suits him.  Nick’s hand carved wooden signs hang all around the Vineyard on the end posts labeling the grape varieties, offering a phrase of wisdom or simply showing where to park.  In the evening you can find him working the grounds, and is also part of the Snow Farm special event staff.
