Meet the Team
Brittany had the unfortunate luck of being handed a business at 19 when her father suddenly passed away. Forced to grow up at a young age, Brittany has fully embraced her father's motto "Wine Without Bull" and has taken off running with it. She has managed to keep the relaxed and fun atmosphere here while creating quite the legacy of her own, including many new wine releases and a brand new addition on the building. She truly is our fearless leader and keeps her workers motivated and happy everyday.
Molly joined the Bagley's team in 2014. After working in the tasting room and as head giftshop purchaser at Hazlitt's for 4 years, she was ready for a change of pace. With a degree in digital media from Alfred State, she is a very skilled and a talented artist. Her artistic side has transformed into true passion for winemaking and dedication needed to excel in such a physically demanding field. Molly resides in Hector and has a deep love for her two rescue dogs (Swampy and Mio) and every other dog for that matter.
With over 16 years in the grape growing business, Kenny has a true passion for viticulture. He has many years experience working for large growers such as Sawmill Creek Vineyards and Chateau Lafayette Reneau. Kenny joined the Bagley's team in 2009 and has since turned the vineyards around with his attention to detail and perseverance. He has found his home here at Bagley's Poplar Ridge and has literally become part of the family marrying Brittany in the summer of 2017. They reside in Hector with Kenny's son and labrador Willie Nelson.
A native of Alaska, Patrick moved to Seneca Lake in 2013. After being in the Army, he has chosen a more relaxed career in the vineyards. He shows true dedication and perseverance through adverse weather. Patrick resides in Hector.

Our newest employee Aaron came to us from Hazlitt Vineyards. His knowledge of the wine industry and great sense of humor make him a perfect fit here at Bagley's. Aaron does it all from pouring tastings to helping make wine to working in the vineyards and even pouring at outside events. We cherish his positive, go-getter attitude that he carries thru in everything he does and we look forward to working beside him for years to come. Aaron lives in Hector with his girlfriend Claire and cat Peabody and enjoys being an avid hunter.
