Owner JESSI TRAUTH: Born and raised in Montana's Bitterroot Valley, Jessi Trauth moved to New York City at the age of 18 where she earned a BFA in theatre from NYU. With a thirst for creative expression she has worked to facilitate connection and activate the senses through many mediums. Throughout her time working as an artist in NYC and touring the world with musicals, her love for wine grew and took hold. Jessi began hosting interactive wine tastings in 2013 and developing her concept of art and wine pairings, leading her to form her band CORK & SPARK. Jessi seeks to connect to the character and life of a wine though music, movement, food, and poetry while offering extensive knowledge and background about the source and wine making process.  She is thrilled to be back in her home land offering wine and goods produced by the most ethical, talented, and dedicated producers around the globe. 
The power and artistry available in a beautiful wine has the potential to captivate and lift us into endless opportunities for connection and meaningful experience. 

She is a passionate individual committed to sharing her knowledge and love for wine with others. Her wine journey began in Colorado where she honed her skills sharing wine in restaurants and wine bars. She is particularly captivated by the stories behind family wine-making operations and the artistry inside each bottle.
Born and raised in Montana, Alyssa felt a strong pull to return. In early April 2024, she made the move back to the Treasure State and joined the team here at Jessi's Wine & Goods, bringing her expertise and enthusiasm for wine to the local community. Her experiences in Denver and deep connection to Montana make her an asset to our wine family in Hamilton. If you haven't yet, stop in for a glass and say hello! 


Daniele joined the team in March of 2023. Daniele has lived in Hamilton since 2018 after completing her MFA in photography from SAIC in Chicago. She loves being here because of the ways that wine can connect people and facilitate meaningful experiences and conversations. She’s fascinated by the weaving of agriculture, history, craft, and experimentation in winemaking.  

Some of her favorite wine producers include Outward Wines, Populis, and Angelino Maule (pictured here) She adores the complex finish on this Rosso Masieri.  

When not at Jessi’s, Daniele teaches art at Hamilton High School, as well as through other community organizations. She also assists her husband, Tim Puczkowskyj, as he raises pastured pork and grass fed lamb over at Sunning Dog Livestock
