About Jen Walsh:
Before joining the La Crema team in 2017, Jen was the Associate Winemaker at Benovia Winery in the Russian River Valley, where she worked with myriad heritage Pinot Noir clones from different terroirs to craft distinctive single vineyard wines. Prior to that, she worked for several other wineries throughout Napa and Sonoma. Her passion has always led her to wineries that focus on expressive, cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Jen’s favorite aspect of her job is harvest, when winemakers have a chance to leave their personal artistic expression on the wine. Her most transformative experience was working at Domaine Marquis d’Angerville in Volnay, Burgundy, where she was awarded a Tastevin scholarship. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, it will always fuel her winemaking soul.
