Yvonne Davis (Moderator)- Waters Winery

Yvonne came to Seattle, 8 years ago from Los Angeles, California with a dream to break into the wine industry. She packed up her car, did a road trip through Napa, and immediately upon arriving in Seattle enrolled in the Sales & Marketing program at the Northwest Wine Academy. The rest is history.

Yvonne started out in tasting rooms at Columbia Winery and Delille Cellars then moved over to the distribution side of the wine industry as a Corporate Accounts Executive with Cru Selections and Acme Wine Co.

In 2015, Yvonne joined winemaker Ryan Crane of Kerloo Cellars SoDo where she wore many hats as the Operations and Marketing Director which included marketing, managing the tasting room, running events, wine club, and overseeing shipping and compliance.

In September of 2018 Yvonne joined the TR wine team, which includes her husband Jamie Brown winemaker for Waters Winery and 21 Grams. It has always been a dream for Yvonne and Jamie to team up and work together. Yvonne will be heading up the Waters SODO tasting room location where she looks forward to connecting with all of their loyal wine lovers. Yvonne brings a wealth of wine experience and is excited to be part of the next chapter of TR Wines future.

 

Jody Elsom | Owner/Winemaker Elsom Cellars 

Jody’s a traveling spirit. If you ask her what inspires her, you get a million glimpses of the world she’s seen. This old world teaches us a lot, if we slow down and let it. And, if we sit across a table from a stranger with a couple glasses of great wine, before long, it’s surprising how much we all share. Wine gathers its taste from everything it encounters. The earth. The air. Everything leaves a mark. So do people. Jody’s passion for wine began in the Napa Valley and further explored through numerous experiences in the vineyards and wineries throughout Italy and France. Formally educated as one of the first graduates from WSU’s extension studies of Enology. Jody has a passion for developing wines that best represent the possibilities for Washington Wines.

Thank you to our sponsors!

It’s been said that wine reflects its environment. Elsom Cellars’ wines are filled with the clatter of artisans working hard at their winemaking craft, sharing stories, kids laughing. It’s hard to explain, but somehow it all ends up in the bottle.
