Roselle's Lynfred Winery Welcomes New Tasting Room Manager
Jun 28, 2017 4:44 PM -
For almost 40 years, Lynfred Winery's tasting room was managed by Lynfred Winery founder Fred Koehler's daughter, Diane Koehler-Rasmussen. Mrs. Koehler-Rasmussen officially retired on May 27 and on May 28 Gigi Bendis assumed the position of Tasting Room Manager at Illinois' oldest and largest, family-owned winery. Bendis is no stranger to Lynfred Winery, as she has been working for the winery for over three years as a sales associate. She quickly rose in the ranks at the winery with her dedication to customer service and her eye for detail. "We saw something special in Gigi immediately," says Lynfred General Manager Andres Basso. "The winery is dedicated to concierge-level service, and Gigi's desire for excellence will help carry on the amazing legacy that our founders created."
