Jessica Tarpy

Jessica is a winemaker because she spent a summer in Pisa eating gelato and decided to major in Italian and one thing led to another. There were the Florence years, the wine retail years, and the postbac (that’s the European way to say “postgrad”) studies in enology and viticulture. Jessica has made wine in many interesting places, including Klein Constantia in South Africa. With Andy Erickson and Annie Favia, she owns the experimental label ROOM. Jessica describes the motley mix of grape varieties grown here on the ranch as a “gumbo pot.”
