MEET OUR STAFF

BOB SCHERB
For Bob, finding a true expression of terroir in the bottle makes selling wine a labor of love. At a time when selection, experience, and connoisseurship are more important than ever, he’s made L&E the best thing he can imagine: the kind of wine shop he would like to visit.

KEVIN GELLER
Kevin brings high energy to the store, and his passion is contagious. His knack for pairing wines to cuisine -- and to special occasions -- will guarantee that you'll leave with a superb selection that may very well become your new favorite.

SAM WELCH
Sam, our resident expert on all things geographical, says he works in a wine shop because it’s the best way he knows to share the wines he loves. Whether you’re looking to try something new or searching for an old standby, every sale is a conversation and a chance to find a wine you’ll love as well.

GASTON GUIBERT
Gaston's love of wine was deepened by exploring ancestral roots in SW France and is now nurtured when tending his hobby vineyard on the McKenzie River. He thinks he has the best job in the world: connecting wine lovers with authentic wines that reflect the places they come from.
