Carrie Kalscheuer | Director of Sales & Education

Carrie began her career in the restaurant industry and decided to make wine her focus after an influential bottle of Amarone while living in Italy. She abandoned a promising future in Philosophy and today is a Certified Wine Educator and Certified Sommelier. Beckoned by the Pacific Northwest and its wines, she boldly moved to Oregon having never visited and fell in love with the outdoors where she hikes, camps, kayaks and paddleboards as often as she can.

Jonathan Lampe | DTC Hospitality Lead

Jonathan originally joined REX HILL part-time in the tasting room to expand his knowledge of Pinot Noir and wine in general. Those weekend shifts intensified his passion for wine so much that he decided to leave his decade-long career in insurance and join the team full time. He has since become a Certified Specialist of Wine and has passed the Wine & Spirit Education Trust Level 3 Certification.  Often bowtie clad, Jonathan is happy to share interesting wine knowledge in the tasting room.

Emily Salko | Event Specialist

Emily has had a long career in fine dining. As a Certified Sommelier, Emily strives to create balance between fine wine & delicious food for each event she oversees. When she’s not executing events, she’s mountain biking or backpacking into the wilderness with her partner, a local butcher. Currently, their backpacks are getting dusty and their wine cellar is staying untouched, as they make plans for a tiny new family member arriving in January 2021.
