Jessica, is the mom of an amazing 4 year old boy and is the owner of not one, but two businesses in the wine Industry. Take a look below to learn more!
Why do you love living in our area?

Tell us about your family!
I have 1 amazing four year old boy. Roman loves helping me out in the store! His favorite time of year at the boutique is Halloween, he LOVES handing out candy to the kids on Main Street as well as going to local shops as a trick or treater! He takes it very serious.
Why did you decide to launch your business?
Prior to becoming a mom I managed and ran beverage programs as the Sommelier at restaurants. I loved what I did but SUPER LONG & LATE HOURS. Once Roman was born I of course wanted to spend all the time I could with him while still proving income and sharing my passion of wine. I started wine consulting for private clients and business owners with a company I curated called Wine Vie. Two years later, the stars aligned and I purchased Down the Rabbit Hole Wine Boutique becoming the third proprietor!
Tell us more about your business!
Wine Vie is a wine & event consulting company focused on natural wine education. Our most popular service is In- Home tasting events. Down the Rabbit hole wine boutique is the smallest wine shop in New York State and we specialize in natural, and organic wines from all over the world. My goal in both businesses in to make the subject of wine more fun and approachable!
What motivates you?
They hold me accountable in a bright positive way that keeps me going! Business: My clients and customers! I love getting emails or returning customers rejoicing about a specific wine I introduced them to or how they appreciate walking into the shop and getting warm recommendations of wines. I live for that!!
What is the best mom advice you can give or have received?
