Jason Ventana

Jason Blaine

President

Faith Hill, LL Cool J, Mariah Carey and BB King are just a few of the names and faces of people that have crossed Jason’s path after spending 25 years in the music industry as a Record Business Executive.

But, after the crash of the music industry in the late 90’s, he found himself looking for a new career and was drawn to the beauty of the Sonoma and Napa Valley’s, and he has been here ever since.

Today, Jason is surrounded by a different type of Rock n Roll Celebrity – that of the likes of Cult Winemakers like Nils Venge, Heidi Barrett, Food Guru’s Michael Chiarello and Thomas Keller, Wine Aficionados and yes, even the Rock Icons like the Doobie Bros., Carlos Santana love being involved in the wine industry.

For the last 10 years, Jason has been working for a major wine tour operator learning the basic ins and outs of the wine tour business. And now, he is ready to take it to the next level.
Jason-and-CelebJason’s extensive wine knowledge, history of the wine country, coupled with the working relationship that he has developed over the last decade can offer you the wine tour of a lifetime. Come join Jason for fun sips n swirls and make some Rock n Roll winecountry memories. Cheers
