Meet Our Staff

The staff at Falmouth Wine & Spirits can help you select great wines for a gift, specific food pairing, house-warming present, BBQ, dinner, a summer evening on the patio, for planning a wedding and more. And we are not limited to wines — we feature premium beers from around the world, fabulous local cheeses, and more! Our experienced staff can also guide you through your own personal preferences – you have questions and we have the answers!

Jay Hedlund

As Proprietor, I enjoy my job, staff, and the many customers that visit the store. I wish to thank everyone for the opportunity of serving you.

Alex Williams

Alex refinishes boats by day and and sells wine and beer with us in the evening.  He is enthusiastic about life, and shares this enthusiasm with everyone around him.

Karen Michalec

Karen is a creative, steady force in our “family”.  Karen’s painstaking attention to detail is likely due to her background & training in archaeology.  She loves Italian white wines, and can help you find those or anything you are looking for at the store.

Nancy is a wine enthusiast, who is passionate and eager to tell you all about wine.  She loves to share her knowledge and passion with all of you.  She selflessly tastes wine after wine, day after day, choosing the ones that match the tastes and budgets of Falmouth Wine customers.  Nancy is always ready to provide exceptional customer service.
