About Jason Ruppert

Jason is a certified sommelier and has run successful and press worthy wine programs in the SF Bay Area including 123 Bolinas, Molina and Revival. He has been consulting for wine related businesses such as Minimo in Oakland and the Crenn group, focused on the buying aspect and hospitality. He is now devoting most of his time to the viticultural and production side of wine, having worked with Ted Lemon of Littorai, Pax Mahle of Pax and Wind Gap, Scott Schultz of Jolie Laide and Steve Matthiasson of Matthiasson wines, hoping to eventually soon work with and farm a vineyard and produce elegant and respectful wines from Northern California.
