With a background in microbiology, Kristie Tacey is fascinated by the cycle of life. Each vintage of Tessier wines captures and reflects one year in the lives of the vineyards she works with. She sources high-quality fruit from a strong network of farmers in the Anderson Valley, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Arroyo Seco, and El Dorado Foothills. With minimal-interventionist winemaking techniques, she showcases the unique characteristics of the grapes and vineyards. For Kristie, sustainability is a priority — not only in farming practices, but in cultivating long-term relationships with her growers and customers. Her limited- production wines (1,400 cases per year) get unparalleled attention.
