Greetings to our member family!
We hope that this newsletter finds you well and enjoying the beautiful beginnings of the fall season.
We have certainly had an unexpectedly tricky kick-off to our fall and harvest season here in Napa Valley. Despite the fires that have devastated many of the homes and wineries in our area, we remain strong, positive, and resilient. We are surrounded by an incredible community both in Napa and afar, with you, our precious Wine Club family. Your unending care and support help to keep our spirits and hearts lifted and moving forward.
Although this harvest season may not offer us the abundance that we had hoped for, we have been fortunate to bring in some amazing fruit that we look forward to sharing with you in the years to come. Most importantly, our team is safe and devoted to continuing to produce the incredible wines that we all love and deliver the very best customer service to our wine family.
We know you may have had a trip planned to see us this year, and we want to assure you that whenever that trip happens, we will be here. While we will not be able to have an in-person member celebration this year, we are working diligently to bring the Jessup experiences to your home. Be on the lookout for a lot of exciting programming this fall and winter, or book a virtual tasting with us! If you’re close by, please come by for a tasting experience. We have indoor and outdoor patio experiences available!
I am incredibly excited about our fall releases this year, and I hope you will share your thoughts with me. Please stay safe, sound, and stocked up on your favorite wines, and we will see you very soon.

About: Bernardo began his career in the vineyards, learning the intricacies of grape growing and how to adjust to the whims of Mother Nature. He then moved into the cellars at Jessup Cellars in 2008, bringing his complete grape to bottle knowledge to the team.
One of our longest time staff members in the company, Bernardo is beyond hard-working and incredibly passionate about crafting the beautiful wines we have all come to love!
Cheers to you, Bernardo!
