Favorite Jessup Wine Pairing: Carneros Pinot Noir w/english coastal cheddar

About: I have always been an active wild child in love with sports and the great outdoors.  It was not until getting away from Napa and going to college, and then coming back after graduation to work harvest that I discovered my passion for wine. After learning more about the world of wine it became so intriguing and exciting that I knew, similar to what I’d imagine is like falling in love, that I had found something I want to be part of for the rest of my life.

Cellar Crew

Hometown: Napa CA

Pairing: Jessup Cellars Carneros Pinot Noir with a Fried Egg BLT.

Bio: I was born and raised in Napa, almost completely oblivious to the wine industry that was expanding around me. I was picking up odd jobs around the Valley that were on the periphery of winemaking, when I was offered the opportunity to work a harvest with Jessup Cellars. One harvest became two and here I am, now full-time in the cellar working with some of the best and brightest. I couldn’t ask for a better mentor in winemaker Rob Lloyd.  I hope to continue my education here and contribute as much as I can to my team!

Sheryl WallSheryl Wall

Hospitality & Membership Specialist

Hometown: Oroville, CA,  in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.

Favorite Jessup Pairing:  Zinfandel and pulled chicken tacos with spicy chipotle tomato sauce and a squirt of lime.

Most Memorable Food Experience:  Traveling in remote areas of Latin America, the recipes are always ancient, traditional and consistently delicious.  Often elaborate only for special occasions, daily sustenance has been fine tuned over generations to be the least expensive, most nourishing, simple masterpieces.  This is the kind of food continues to wow me!

Home Town: Sebastopol, CA

Favorite Jessup Pairing: Pinot Noir and a thin crust wood fired pizza with smoked ham, mozzarella and crispy Brussels sprout leafs.  Sprinkle in an outdoor fire and good company and you have yourself a perfect evening.

About: I was born and raised in Sonoma County in the Russian River appellation. Growing up I played numerous rounds of golf and loved being outdoors. The rural farmland covered in apple trees and vineyards always excited me. My Uncle first introduced me to the wine industry when I was very young. From the tender age of 12, I knew I wanted to be involved in the wine industry. Upon graduation, I attended college at CSU Fresno and studied winemaking. Following a great time in college, I returned back to Northern California to utilize my fresh knowledge. After a few internships, I landed myself at the best Winery in California, Jessup Cellars and I couldn’t be happier!
