Susan Higgins - Owner, Business ManagerSusan Higgins

 

Susan's interest in food and wine was nurtured by sharing stories and laughter around the family dinner table while enjoying her mother's fine cuisine.   She spent her undergraduate years at The Ohio State University, and worked as a business analyst for a major consumer products company located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

 

When Susan met Tom, she began spending vacation weekends with him in the Finger Lakes.  There, she fell in love with the beautiful scenery, the excellent restaurants dedicated to creating fine meals sourced from local farmers, and of course, the wineries! 

 

After Tom and Susan were married and moved to the NYC metropolitan area, these weekend trips became much more frequent, and they began to ponder the possibilities of someday having a winery of their own.

 

Susan holds an MBA from NYU's Stern School of Business and is a Principal at a leading management consulting firm.    She leverages this experience as she oversees all aspects of winery business and financial planning and operations management.  Additionally, she assists Tom with winemaking activities, with her particular favorite task being pre-bottling taste trials!
