Dominique "Nikki" Newman- "Wine Club, Office and everything in between" Manager


Hey Guys!

I'm Dominique, but you can just call me Nikki, all my friends do=)

I am into my third year here at Hye Meadow, and I LOVE it!  I enjoy working at a place where everyone is happy to come through our door, family (employees) and friends (customers) alike.  I enjoy the family atmosphere we've built here.  I hope you will too!

So some things about myself....

I'm a proud mother of three, been married to the love of my life for 18 years, and as a lifelong resident of Hye, I lucked into this job almost three years ago.  I found a home away from home, where I could go from talking about my latest disaster to laughing about Justin's antics in the space of a heartbeat.  I have learned so much since the beginning of my journey at Hye Meadow…

You see I didn’t come to Hye Meadow because of my love of wine, the only thing I knew about wine, was that it came in a cardboard But slowly as I learned and grew my knowledge, I have come to respect the crazy perfect art that is wine making.  Being able to see through the eyes of our winemaker (Mike Batek, shout out to you!!!) and absorb the amount of passion and creative juices (literally…lol) I have come to appreciate beautiful wines like never before.

That’s what I’m here for…to be someone who inspires that passion and helps to encourage your love of wine.  I want to help give you what Hye Meadow has given me… a place to share ideas and enjoy the people around me…a home away from home.

Wine to me is passion. It's family and friends. It's warmth of heart and generosity of spirit.
