In 2006, Jesse and his brother, Aaron, had an opportunity to purchase several tons of Pinot Noir, their favorite varietal. It cost them their life savings, but the opportunity was too good to pass up. Using the facilities at August Briggs Winery, owned by their uncle Joe, they produced a wine that was all their own –the first vintage of Romililly Pinot Noir. They made a lot of mistakes and learned plenty. Their little 200-case vintage gained them a lot of attention, earning a 93 rating from the Pinot Report. For the next five years, they kept at it, slowly increasing their production, but never enough to satisfy demand, so they kept growing the business. Jesse says it is all about family, learning by doing, taking on more than they can probably handle, and including wine in every part of their lives. They pride themselves on being upstarts in the winemaking industry, not winemaking royalty, and their renegade approach influences the wine they make and it keeps them hungry for success.
