Jesse creates distinct, nuanced wines for his brands Aperture Cellars and Devil Proof Vineyards. Aperture, a collaborative project with his father, focuses on Bordeaux varietals and demonstrates an expression of art both inside the bottle and out. Devil Proof Vineyards, consisting of two dramatic dry-farmed 100% Malbec single vineyards, received the highest rating of the varietal from California from Robert Parker, Jr., Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, and was named “Cult Winery of the Year” upon its inaugural release.
Wine Enthusiast named Jesse one of its 40 Under 40 Tastemakers and he was also the first winemaker on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. Aperture Cellars was recently selected as a “Rising Star” by Wine Spectator and Devil Proof remains the highest-rated California Malbec by all the top wine critics, including Robert Parker, Wine Enthusiast, and Wine Spectator.
