Production and Vineyard Hand
Some of you may have met Jake this last summer if you visited the Tasting Room before he began his Harvest Internship. Jake moved to San Luis Obispo from Southern Idaho, where he grew up, to attend college at Cal Poly where he studied Agriculture Business. After seeing his drive and versatility during harvest, Stephan decided he would make a great addition to the team and brought him on full time on the vineyard/production side. Jake has found an interest in learning all the subtle nuances in our terroir, which make Paso and specifically L’Aventure, special and which later develop in the barrel. Vineyard and harvest work can be tough, but Jake says it is worth it to see how the fruit develops from grape to wine.
