We are excited to announce the promotion of Jennifer Higgins, who has recently accepted the role of Frank Family’s new Wine Club Manager. As one of our longest tenured employees, Jen has played an active role in Frank Family’s success over the past few decades. Starting as the winery’s receptionist in 2008 and then moving to Wine Club Assistant shortly after, Jen has nearly 15 years of experience in customer service and hospitality.
Now as the Manager of one of Napa Valley’s most beloved wine clubs, Jen is excited to carry on our winery’s enduring legacy of exceptional wine and world-class events. When she’s not meeting members in the tasting room, assisting them with online orders, or welcoming guests with a splash of wine at events, Jen is a busy wife and mother of two as well as a singer in her barbershop quartet, Sweet Adelines.
Please join us in raising a glass to Jen and get to know her a little more with our fun Q&A below. Club members, feel free to email Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org with all your wine club needs or to just say hello!
