Come have some wine with us!
Lindsey was raised in the Pacific Northwest, growing up in a small town called Duvall, outside of Seattle. She was always the planner among her friends and discovered her passion for events while working as an Intern at the SEL Event Center in Pullman where she coordinated her own events. Lindsey graduated from Washington State University in 2013 with a Major in Organizational Communications and a Minor in Hospitality Business Management. After graduation she moved down to San Diego where she began her career as a Catering Coordinator at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa.
As amazing as it was in San Diego, Lindsey missed the seasons and decided to move to Spokane to be with family. She spent the last three years as a Catering Sales Manager at Hotel RL Spokane (now Centennial Hotel). She now joins the Terra Blanca team as our Event and Tasting Room Coordinator for the Tasting Room in Spokane, Washington.
Tyler was born and raised in Richland in the Tri-CIties. He began working at the Terra Blanca Estate on Red Mountain in Spring of 2017. Tyler became intimately familiar with the wide variety of grapes grown on the property. In October of 2018 he relocated to the Spokane tasting room location to work as the Tasting Room Lead!
Sue and her husband moved to Spokane about two years ago from the opposite side of the country and from a place with the opposite weather--St. Petersburg, Florida. But they're loving their new PNW location and all of the beauty and the activities that Spokane is famous for. Sue loves to hike, bike, snowshoe, and kayak. With those interests, why did it take so long to find Spokane? She's also devoted to her children and grandchildren and hops a plane to visit them in CA as often as possible.
Sue's current favorite Terra Blanca wine is the Signature Series Merlot. No, wait . . . the Onyx. Or maybe the Block 8 Syrah. (And when summer arrives, the Rose will be calling to her from the patio.) Obviously there's a lot at Terra Blanca to like. Stop by to say hi and have a taste of our new vintages and choose your own favorite(s).
Becky grew up in Spokane and recently returned to her home town after spending 10 years in Seattle. A graduate from Washington State University's Hospitality Business Management program, she held positions as Conference Services Manager and Banquet Manager at Seattle's iconic Edgewater Hotel and was Catering Manager at the Washington State Convention Center.
Since her return to Spokane, she has enjoyed hiking, camping, refamiliarizing herself with Spokane's downtown corridor and expanding her wine knowledge while working part-time with Terra Blanca.
Lori is excited to have Terra Blanca as her wine home! She and her husband Terry relocated to Liberty Lake from the Woodinville wine area. Lori enjoyed years of working in the wine industry with so many wonderful people and customers that enjoy wine. She is passionate about food and wine pairings, friends, family, travel and on occasion golf (but she is a better grape goddess than a golf goddess). She and Terry are enjoying exploring Spokane and Coeur d’Alene life style.
Lori is often asked does she have a favorite wine. She replies, what kid would she grab in a fire. She then states it depends on what she is eating…however she has a weakness for Terra Blanca’s Block 8 Syrah that puts her in her happy place.
