The Lane Family

Our Staff

DaveDavid 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.  His favorite place around the farm is out in the fields.  Though, often you can find Dave bar tending an evening event, usually enjoying some good local musician’s music.


DSCF0903Julie 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 is almost always found out in the Vineyard tending to the vines.  All year long Alex can be found out in the 13 acres: pruning, training vines through the trellis, pulling weeds, harvesting grapes, or driving around on his beloved Kabota.  Living within walking distance he can keep a close eye on his vines.  


DSCF2719Cassandra Martin is the assistant wine maker, and has everything to do with Snow Farm Vineyard.  Cassandra or Cassie keeps everything in order, from the bottling line to the wine cellar.  Working beside Patrick she lends a hand in the chemistry behind the award winning wines.  She and her husband Chris met working at Snow Farm Vineyard years ago.



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.




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.




Gabrielle Kinney has been working at Snow Farm since the summer of 2016.  She greets visitors coming through the door with the same warmth as if you were coming home.   Easy going, hard working and passionate Gabrielle is a great part of the Snow Farm team. 



Tammy Bourdeau bestows the essence of Snow Farm’s award winning wines with each sip. Life is a journey not a race as a tasting will reflect in the bright fruit, smooth oak and, refreshing feeling of each taste.  Tammy is often out in the vines with her family.




Craig is quick to get out into the vines in the morning.  He came to Snow Farm with a green thumb and strong hand for pruning.   He shares a real joy for working with the vines.





Connor Decker is a carefree easy going islander who grew up in Grand Isle and has been working at the vineyard the past 2 years. He frequents the vineyard also working with his family’s business My Kids Kitchen.
