Aperture Cellars

The wines, and the winery, are just the entry point into Andy and Jesse’s unique world where they incorporate art and wine, and all the elements of nature in one game-changing space. They use their winery as a platform and an incubator for expressing art and the creativity of wine, and the intersection of both right here in Sonoma.

Jesse's passion for winemaking is matched only by his dedication to crafting exceptional wines that reflect the unique terroir of each vineyard. With a background that includes training in Bordeaux and a stint as the youngest head winemaker in the United States, Jesse has quickly become a sought-after name in the world of wine.

The mission for Aperture is to find the top cool-climate spots around California for Jesse's beloved Bordeaux varieties to thrive in and guide those vineyards to bottle. Jesse's wines are a true reflection of his meticulous attention to detail and his commitment to quality. From the first sip, you can taste the complexity, depth, and nuance that are the hallmarks of his winemaking style and site selection.
