Our People

Chuck Tauck

Chuck Tauck, Senior Managing Partner


Chuck was attracted to the Finger Lakes wine industry during his graduate work at the Cornell Hotel School and was instrumental in the transformation of the old abandoned dairy farm to today's winery and vineyard. As principle owner, he assumes the risk of the venture and personally sees to its priorities and requirements.  His usual focus is on the management and company's systems and processes and, when not in the office, he may also be tending vines, troubleshooting phones or computers, weeding the gardens, or chatting with visitors.

Dave Breeden

David Breeden, Winemaker


With experience developed in wineries throughout the Finger Lakes, Dave can always be found in our winery or lab, gently and patiently tending to the fermentation and aging of our wines while caring for our tanks, barrels and equipment. Armed with two degrees in chemistry and two in philosophy, Dave not only brings us expertise in the wine lab and on the crush pad, he also can be heard waxing poetic virtues of everything from Plato's cave to contemporary third-party politics.

Tyler Tauck, Distribution Manager 


Equipped with a degree in Biological Engineering from Cornell University and a sincere passion for the Finger Lakes wine industry, Tyler joined the team in Spring of 2012.  If you can't find Tyler at the winery, he may be working with our distributors, selling our wines to stores and restaurants in New York State, the Big Apple, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and even Texas.  Ty's other passions are skiing and mountain biking, both of which find him lost in the woods somewhere.

Dave Weimann

Dave Weimann, Vineyard Manager


Dave's background includes four years of grapevine management at Cornell's Geneva Agricultural Experiment Station and two years of honeybee research in Ithaca. His love of our vineyard is second only to that for his own farm across the lake. Dave and his vineyard crew take great pride tending the 43 acres of vines at Sheldrake Point Vineyard, while planning and preparing for new acreage each spring.

Lisa Morton

Lisa Morton, Business Manager


With significant experience in finance and operations in the food and wine industries, Lisa provides the true glue that holds this place together - just ask anyone here at Sheldrake! Behind that smile is an acute accommodation for accuracy, a knowledgeable knack for numbers, and a spry spontaneous spirit that keeps everybody on their toes.

Kristina Rose

Jamelle Callon, Tasting Room Manager


Chances are that you will meet Jamelle while visiting our Cayuga Lake Tasting Room, where she and her team enjoy pouring you a few of our award-winning wines.  With her strong background in horticulture and passion for the Finger Lakes wine region, Jamelle and her staff bring a fun and fresh perspective to the enjoyment of good wine.  In her spare time Jamelle loves spending time with her son, Owen, playing with her dog, Reese or in the gardens, both at home or at Sheldrake Point.
