Special Guest: Jasmine Hirsch, Director of Sales & Marketing

Jasmine Hirsch was born and raised in Northern California. She and her sister Jessica were baptized in champagne by their wine-loving parents David and Rebecca Hirsch, and they spent their childhoods at Hirsch Vineyards. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001, Jasmine spent five years living in Europe followed by two years in New York at JP Morgan Private Bank. She escaped from corporate life to take over sales and marketing at Hirsch Vineyards in 2008. She is involved in all aspects of the wine production.

Hirsch Vineyards is recognized as one of the premier sites for Pinot Noir in the New World. David Hirsch planted his vineyard overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the extreme Sonoma Coast in 1980, making it the oldest premium pinot vineyard in the region. Since then it has become one of the most sought-after sources for Pinot Noir grapes in California, providing fruit to Littorai, Lioco, Williams Selyem, Kistler and many others.

Pappas Bros. welcomes our special dinner guest Jasmine Hirsch, Director of Sales & Marketing for Hirsch Vineyards. Jasmine is also the Co-founder of In Pursuit of Balance (IPOB), which is a non-profit organization that was founded to promote dialogue around the meaning and relevance of balance in California Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. IPOB also celebrates wineries striving to produce balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in California and will host its own tasting event for the first time in Houston on Monday, March 30th.

Join us for a grand finale dinner on Tuesday, March 31st highlighting exclusive wines from the Hirsch Vineyards’ library and celebrating wines made in the pursuit of balance.
