Meet our Staff

Lisa Ezzard
Lisa Ezzard is the TMV vineyard Manager and is making her debut this year as winemaker, with the advice of wine consultant Travis Green and the help of assistant winemaker, Matt Rager. She "trained" for years right beside her dad, Dr. John Ezzard, the master grape grower and she understands how to treat each individual vine to make it healthy! She holds a Master's degree in comparative literature, studied in France and China, and has taught literature, writing and dance. She speaks French fluently. Her new book of poems, "Vintage," is available in the tasting room. Contact Lisa at lisa@tigerwine.com or at 760-419-0214. (Attention! This really is a 760 area code for Lisa's phone number, NOT 706!)

Assistant winemaker Rager shows off the near
perfect 2019 Viognier.

Matt Rager, Assistant Winemaker recently completed his graduate degree at Georgia Tech in material engineering. With his incredible chemistry background, he has turned into a terrific assistant, helping crush and ferment the grapes, matching the different types of yeasts with the many varietal vinifera grapes and performing all needed lab tests on the wines

Delena Joedicke, winery manager hails from Long Creek, S.C. She has extensive restaurant and business experience and was once a state patrol woman - so she is a great organizer and has created an enthusiastic, knowledgeable Tasting Room staff with definitive duties to serve our customers. In addition, she serves and delivers to our local vendors in Rabun and Habersham Counties. If you have questions about the wine club database and the status of your membership or if you want wine or gifts shipped to friends or family, call Delena at the Tasting Room: 706-782-4777 or e-mail her: delena@tigerwine.com. She will also schedule tours and tastings for groups and special events at the Red Barn.

Hamilton, Ezzard vineyard dog is the four year old Australian Shepherd who belongs to Martha Ezzard (and was the love of the late Dr. John Ezzard's life as well). He is the constant companion of vineyard manger Lisa and of all vineyard workers. He is a favorite of customers when he visits the Tasting Room (on leash and not for long!!) where he exhibits his good manners admirably. He has no sheep to herd on the Ezzard farm but is good at "herding" the deer or at least scaring them back into the woods and away from the grapes. True to his name, he is an "inclusive" dog who loves all of the people around him of all ages.
