WHERE TEAM SPIRIT AND PARTICIPATION
...are highly valued and encouraged
While each person on the team maintains specific responsibilities, final decisions are always made with input from all members.
Born in Detroit to an automobile and banking family, Fred spent much of his younger years on the east coast in school: Portsmouth Abbey in RI, Princeton University and the Harvard Business School. Following a three year tour of duty with the U.S. Army and a two year stint with General Motors, he moved west in search of something he could build and call his own.
Fred met Juelle Lamb Fisher and the first part of the 'Team' was in place. They were married in the Wedding Garden at the head of the Wedding Vineyard and immediately struck out together to build a life and a business. The rest is history. With their common interests and a love of fine wine, Fisher Vineyards was launched, along with their family and a school for their children (Sonoma Country Day School).
Wife, mother and partner, who helps add balance to the whole project - in the gardens and kitchen - and in the vineyards, where she adds the overall quiet subtleties that one immediately notices when visiting the mountain estates. You will see her traveling across the country, as our ambassador at large.
Robert Charles Fisher
As of July 2004, Robert joins Fisher Vineyards in more than just name (the RCF Vineyard Merlot has been an integral part of the Fisher Vineyards wine portfolio since 1991). After graduating from Duke University with a BS in Economics, Rob worked on Wall Street as a corporate financial advisor focused on mergers, acquisitions and financial restructurings. Returning home from New York in July 2004, Rob is gaining experience in all aspects of wine production and winery business management. Says Rob of his recent months back on the mountain estate "I so enjoy the opportunity to work with my family at Fisher Vineyards... and have experienced nothing more rewarding."
Cameron is the youngest and final member of the family to join Fisher Vineyards. After graduating from Colby College with a BA in English, Cameron moved to San Francisco where she worked for Outside Magazine. It wasn't long, however, before the wine industry called her name. In the spring of 2006, she moved north to St. Helena where she began working for Duckhorn Wine Company. One year later, Cameron joined the team at Fisher Vineyards where she works with Rob Fisher in marketing as well winery hospitality. You will also see her traveling the country representing the family wines.
A Princeton graduate in American History who wanted to work one summer in the winery before she found a 'real job,' Whitney spent the harvest of 1999 in the cellar with hoses and barrels and never left. Now working on her sixth vintage (2004), Whitney makes wine with her mentor Mia Klein, and does not hesitate to tell everyone that she has the best job in the world!
