Our Hospitality Team

Wine tasting isn’t just about the how the wines taste. It’s about having an experience that can affect our perception of the wine and the winery. Every person behind the bar is the winery and every word spoken is a part of that experience. We strive to make that experience just as good as our wines.

– Teresa Moye, General Manager

Fujishin Family Cellars typically focuses on unique wines, showcasing its strengths in ways that please the senses. We try to do the same with our staff. Every team member is unique and highlighting their strengths in our tasting room makes the experience more enjoyable for everyone.

Teresa Moye, General Manager

Teresa co-founded Fujishin Family Cellars in 2009 with Martin Fujishin and is the creative mind behind our sister label, Lost West Winery. She generally manages both brands and deals with the day-to-day operations in the tasting room.

She started her career in the wine industry through immersion, and lots of “hands-on” training. She used her unique perspective, creative abilities and explorative nature to help create the brands you see today. In 2014, she received a degree in IT to help in other areas of the businesses.

When she is not busy “doing all the things”, she is a gamer, mixed media painter, and crafter that enjoys the research of trying wines with everything.
