Supervisor of Sales

Hometown: Detroit born and Napa grown

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.

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!

Guest Relations Specialist

Hometown: San Francisco, CA – GO GIANTS! GO 49ers!
Favorite Jessup Pairing: Juel with a perfectly marbled, bone-in rib eye steak, cooked medium rare.
About: Dining at Meadowood and La Folie were incredible experiences but her all time favorite comfort food
is her mother’s Sopa de Res (Beef Soup). It takes all day to make and can feed a small army.
Served with wedges of citrus, hot sauce, escabeche and tortillas, it is a piping hot meal in a huge bowl. The wait
is so worth it and even that much more enjoyable sitting around the table with family and friends. Buen provecho!
