Tasting Room Manager: Michelle Means


Michelle comes to us from Johnson City, Texas.  Having lived in the neighboring town of Johnson City her entire life, she is about as local as they come!

Michelle comes to us with a strong background in healthcare compliance and management, but over the years, the Texas wine trail kept calling her name.

As the Texas wine trail grew, so did her love for the industry and her desire to become a part of it.

She has done just that!

Standing at a career crossroads just like the Bateks once stood, the good Lord guided her to the gates of Hye Meadow and she hasn’t looked back.

After a few years studying the art of wine making and pouring in the tasting room, she developed a passion for Texas wines and has a mission to help instill that passion into every individual that walks through our doors. She thrives in the customer focused setting of the tasting room!

She is a self-starter with the ideas and drive to assist in the success of our mission in setting the bar “Hye” for a great customer experience.

“A good, fun, honest team, a wonderful family atmosphere, and seriously good wine is ultimately what lead me to pursue a career at Hye Meadow.” –Michelle
