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.
STEPHEN MANTEI: A proud tree hugger, Stephen came to Montana five years ago for a degree in Wildlife Biology and Resource Conservation. His beach pup, Delilah, tagged along as his study partner. He loves grapes as much as trees, having been near and around wine his whole life.
Stephen is jazzed about the shop’s Australian wine section, which features thoughtful wine makers on the cutting edge of what natural wine can and should be. Delilah highly recommends our sparkling and still Chenin Blanc selection, paired with her current favorite: raw salmon.
Stephen’s sister opened her own sustainable wine shop and bar in CA, called Semi Tropic Wines. Be sure to visit them when you head south!
