Meet the Staff

Stefanie Longton

General Manager

Stefanie is a Bennett Lane Winery veteran, helping to open the tasting room in 2003, and gained winery experience prior to that overseas in the Margaret River region of Australia. Residing with her family in Healdsburg, she enjoys wine, travel and the outdoors.

Alise Guzik

Tasting Room Manager

Alise was born and raised in wine country. With her background in theater, hospitality in the wine industry seemed like the natural "first job out of college," which quickly turned into a career. Alise has been in the wine industry ever since. She joined the Bennett Lane crew in September of 2017. She has a passion for talking about all wine and spirits (especially craft whiskey). After the Tasting Room closes for the day, you may be able to catch her in a local theater production, or at home enjoying a glass of Bennett Lane Cabernet with her husband, Zach while cuddling with her dog, Gus.

Donna Murray

Tasting Room Associate 

Napa Valley came calling when Donna left San Francisco in 2014. She was ready to embrace the country lifestyle and beauty of the wine country.  After hosting in the tasting room at a number of wineries, she found the winery she had been looking for.  She fell in love with the wines at Bennett Lane and joined the team in 2016.  A worldly traveler and nature lover, she lived in Bali for seven years.  She spends her leisure time writing, cooking with friends and family, and simply enjoying the "good life!"
