Jocelyn is a new addition to the tiny and fierce part of the team. She's lending her hand in marketing and the tasting room while working towards earning a cool nickname at the winery. In past lives she's owned a garden design and installation company, laid down sweet tracks with her former band, All My Pretty Ones, where she played oboe and sung backup harmony, and performed queer burlesque. Jocelyn is a certified Viticulturist from WSU and a glutton for educational punishment by pursuing her WSET level 3 certification.
Jocelyn and her wife, a local chef, also run a small vineyard and farm in Husum, WA. They grow 5 acres of grapes that include Tempranillo, Muscat, Gewürztraminer and Syrah. Plus they have a super sweet yurt rental to round things out. In her free time, she can be caught racing around a roller derby track or cuddling chickens.
You can recognize Jocelyn by her loud cackle and even louder earrings.
