Before she joined the team, Jessica already had an intimate knowledge of Williams Selyem ―she was part of a public accounting firm in Santa Rosa responsible for auditing our yearly financial statements. The financials must have been just as good as the wine, because Jessica jumped at the chance to join us in 2008. Jessica loves Pinot because it keeps her employed (insert smiley face) but she also feels like it’s impossible not to fall in love with a bottle of Williams Selyem. She also loves Zinfandel, falling for the jam, the pepper aromas, and the way it pairs with a grilled steak and good conversation.
Jessica spends a lot of her free time at Home Depot (her home improvement list is long), but occasionally finds time to hang out with her two dogs, “Chipper” Jones and Luca, or hit the local links with her husband. Friends call her “Sica” for short, we’re lucky to have this Chico State grad watching the books as closely as she guards the Pinots aging in her cellar. Jessica was born in 1983, a year when the Sonoma County Pinots were noted as, “rustic” with hints of “ripe plum and soy sauce” and essences of “wet slate and mushroom.”
